Vintage Manchego Cheese
Our artisan Manchego is aged for a minimum of 6 months and made from 100% unpasteurised Manchega sheep’s milk. The paste has a slight graininess and characteristic manchego ‘pinhole’ appearance. The flavour begins sweet and grassy and develops into a complex nuttiness which lingers on the palate.
We source our Manchego from Gómez Moreno Cheeses who have been making cheese on the La Mancha plain since the 19th Century and was started by a family of shepherds. Head cheesemaker Jose Miguel uses a 100 year old recipe and only the unpasteurised milk of the indigenous Manchega sheep to produce this ‘Carpuela’ range of manchegos. ‘Carpuela’ refers to Bernardo Carpuela a local, legendary cheesemaker of the 19th Century.
Cheese weights ordered in multiple quantities are always cut as one large piece, unless otherwise requested in the delivery notes section of checkoutRead More
