This cheese selection represents a good cross section of Spain’s best cheeses. Heady aromas, intensely fulfilling textures, and vibrant flavors of Spain's artisan cheese tradition are embodied in this carefully chosen selection. Different milks, a diverse terrain, and unique cheese making techniques all play a role in the subtle differences in each cheese's color, texture, and flavor. We have selected four of our favorites for this sampler:
Manchego – Without a doubt, this is Spain's most famous cheese, made entirely from pure La Mancha sheep's milk. Manchego is prized for its rich, complex flavor and satisfyingly grainy texture. This pasteurized version is aged for three months. (8 oz.)
Mahon - This firm cow's milk cheese comes from the Balearic Island of Menorca in the Mediterranean. This version has been aged for three months, developing a rich tanginess and fragrant aroma. (8 oz.)
Idiazabal - Smooth, rich and satisfyingly sharp, Idiazabal is a smoked sheep's milk cheese that gives off a warming rustic scent. It is the quintessential cheese of the Basque country in Northern Spain. (8 oz.)
Murcia al Vino - This 100% goat's milk cheese from Murcia is bathed in red Spanish wine, making this product a wine-and-cheese party all by itself! The smooth goat's milk compliments the fruity wine aroma and combined they make for a great taste sensation. (8 oz.)
This assortment includes four 1/2 pound cuts of cheese.
