Young, Semi-Aged and Reserva Manchego
Item: CS-176 |
US Only |
Discover the true flavor of fine Manchego cheese with this beautifully packaged collection. All three Manchegos start with ultra fresh raw milk from the Alvarez estate, and different aging periods create a delicious variety of flavor intensity and aroma. Serve this flight of cheeses with a bottle of your favorite wine and discover what Manchego is really about.
Start your tasting with the mild young Manchego, aged for about three months. Each bite has a smooth, slightly creamy texture and mild sharpness with pleasant herbal notes. Next, try the bolder semi-aged Manchego, aged for at least 6 months. A firmer, denser bite gives way to a bright sharpness and complex nutty flavor. Finally try the reserva, aged for nearly a year. With a dense, almost crumbly texture and pronounced sharpness, it has a bold flavor that lingers on the palate.
The Alvarez Valera family has crafted Manchego cheese for four generations. They raise their own flock of Manchega breed sheep, ensuring the freshest, finest quality milk for making cheeses. Unlike the bland industrial Manchego you may have tried from the supermarket, these cheeses have a complexity of flavor that only comes from the finest raw milk and artisan methods.
This collection is packed by hand with an attractive ribbon to make the perfect gift for the cheese lover.
