Our 12 month cured Manchego La Tradicion has a very intense flavour with aromas of leather and cereal. Because this mature cheese has been cured for up to 365 days, it is full body with a strong aroma. It has a dense paste with lots of small eyes (ojos). The texture is dryish but pliable. It has a complex savoury flavour with hints of caramel and a long, intense finish.
Packaged in a 3kg wheel, this manchego is small enough to handle and big enough to share. This quality cheese has Queso Manchego D.O. seal of authenticity, attesting to its high quality.
Serve slices or wedges of this pleasant cheese as tapas or snacks with olives, accompanied by sherry, beer or sangria. It is also great served as a light dessert accompanied by traditional membrillo (quince paste), fresh fruit or honey.
