Spanish Sheep Cheeses

One of the most outstanding Spanish cheeses is sheep cheese, as P.D.O Idiazábal, P.G.I. Castellano cheese, P.D.O. Zamorano cheese, and of course, the P.D.O. Manchego cheese.

The P.D.O Manchego cheese is the Spanish cheese most consumed in the USA. For a cheese to be called Manchego, it must be made from La Mancha sheep’s milk and mature for at least 30 days.

This cheese is distinguished by its pressed paste, natural color and acid flavor, with a slight intense touch, but with an exquisite taste. It is also characterized by having a pattern on its rind and being divided into four equal parts.
