Perhaps the most famous Spanish Manchego Cheese, is a cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the manchega breed. Official Manchego Cheese is to be aged for between 60 days and two years.
Manchego Cheese has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture, and often contains small, unevenly distributed air pockets. The colour of the Manchego Cheese varies from white to ivory-yellow, and the inedible rind from yellow to brownish-beige. The Manchego Cheese has a distinctive flavour, well-developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight piquancy, and leaves an aftertaste that is characteristic of sheeprsquo;s milk.
Artisanal Semi-Cured Sheep Cheese ‘DO Manchego’ by Artequeso, made from raw sheep milk and aged for 3 – 5 months, depending on size. ‘Artequeso’ has won different awards over the years, among them for the ‘Best Artisanal Cured Manchego Cheese’ and ‘Best Artisanal Semi-Cured Manchego Cheese’, awarded by the Castilla La Mancha Department of Agriculture.
