Queso Manchego DOP 6 meses (Manchego Cheese PDO Aged 6 Months)

$7.00 inc. GST

Manchego is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed.

Manchego has a compact consistency and a beautiful buttery texture, with small, unevenly distributed air pockets. The colour of the cheese varies from white to ivory-yellow, and the inedible rind from yellow to brownish beige. The cheese has a unique flavour, well developed but not too strong and creamy, touch of nuttiness and leaves an after taste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk. 

Official manchego cheese is to be aged for between 60 days and two years and this one is aged 6 months.

The designation queso manchego is ‘Protected Designation of Origin’ under Spain and the European Union meaning that is certified authentic and original cheese. 

Manchego is the flavour of Spain and extremely versatile – perfect on a cheese plate, pan-fried for cheese fingers, grated over pasta, pizza, lasagna or cannelloni or to make the perfect jamon and manchego cheese toastie or simply add to a salad. Manchego would be the next Parmesan in Australian everyday cuisine.
