The aroma of this minimum 5-month-matured Manchego is of butter and cereal. The paste is pale ivory, semi-hard and dense; the flavours are of sweet and rich ewes’ milk and raw almonds. It has a long, clean finish. 200g wedge
This is an artisan-made unpasteurised Manchego cured. It is made using solely the milk of Manchega sheep, grazing the open grasslands of La Mancha. It has a Denomination of Origin from La Mancha as proof of its quality and provenance.
Our 1605 Manchego is made at the Sierra la Solana estate, 150km south of Madrid. Here you can find traditional, rustic Mediterranean vegetation, as well as a harsh and extreme climatic environment, ideal for the native Manchega sheep to roam about. The result is a clean, rich-tasting milk with a sweet and malted cereal finish, which translates into elegant, fruity, intense flavours with a long finish.
