Country of Origin: La Mancha, Spain
Milk: Sheep, Pasteurised
Wine Match: Merlot, Tempranillo, Garnacha
Notes: This famous cheese has been made to strictly limited regional “Denominacion de Origen (D.O)” controls in La Mancha from the milk of the Manchega sheep. The sheep graze on the shrubs & grasses of the Dahesa producing the thick, aromatic milk that gives Manchego its character. The complexity of the flavour will depend on the age, but there should be a richness reminiscent of Brazil nuts & burnt caramel with a slightly salty finish.
