Processing
An artisanal cheese made with raw milk from carefully selected sheep of the Castilian breed, descended from the Zamora variety. Low-acidity milk with high fat content.
This compact cheese is aged for two months in a cold chamber at a temperature of 10º C and then spends four months in a cold, humid underground cellar.
Taste note
  • Outer appearance: Hard, waxy yellow to brownish rind.
  • Inner appearance: Semi-matte yellowish ivory color. A few small holes scattered throughout the cheese.
  • Texture: Firm, compact and somewhat stretchy.
  • Taste and aroma: Slightly acid aroma reminiscent of sheep's milk, with notes of butter and nuts. It leaves a pleasant oily sensation in the mouth. It has a slight tang that gradually becomes noticeable. The taste and aroma persist for a long time.
Ingredients
Raw sheep's milk and rennet.
Storing and enjoying your cheese
Tips for savoring all the aroma and flavor of this cheese:
  1. Keep it in a cool, dry place between 2º and 8º C (you can use the lower part of your refrigerator).
  2. Serve it at room temperature.
  3. After cutting the cheese, store it immediately in the refrigerator in a hermetically sealed plastic container along with a piece of dry bread. The bread will absorb moisture and protect the cheese from mold and excessive drying. Replace the bread when it is covered with mold.
