Country of Origin: Spain Style: Semi-Hard Milk: Sheep, Unpasteurised Wine Match: Pinot Noir, Gamay, Sparkling Shiraz
Notes: It is made with the raw milk of Laxta and Carranza sheep, lightly pressed and aged for 2-10 months. Smoking is an optional touch, reflecting a history of hanging wheels near a fireplace to dry. This is highly smoked and aged only 2-3 months. Supple, toothsome texture at this point and the subtle sharpness before it becomes hot with more age. The special sheep give exceptionally rich, fatty milk, resulting in a buttery mouth feel and an intriguing gamy character.
