Spanish Cheese Assortment - 2 Pound Image
Spanish Cheese Assortment - 2 Pound

You sense it immediately - the heady aromas, the intensely fulfilling textures and the vibrant flavors of Spains artisan cheese tradition. Different milks, a diverse terrain, and unique cheesemaking techniques all play a role in the subtle differences in each cheeses color, texture and flavor. We have selected four of our favorites for this sampler:
  • Manchego - Spains most famous cheese, made entirely from pure La Mancha sheeps milk. Manchego is prized for its rich, complex flavor and its satisfyingly grainy texture.
  • Mahon Reserva - This firm, sharp, cows milk cheese comes from the Balearic Island of Menorca in the Mediterranean. This exclusive version has been aged for 12 months, developing a rich tanginess and fragrant aroma.
  • 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.
  • 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!
This assortment includes four 1/2 pound cuts.
