Manchego is a name-protected cheese which may only be made in Spain‘s central La Mancha region—and only from the milk of Manchega sheep. This Don Juan Manchego contains raw milk and ages for a minimum of one year. Its extra character is partially due to the milk and maturation, but also to the care the cheesemakers take during the handling. It is truly a small-scale artisan product; it is hand-formed, hand-wrapped, and dry cured for 9 months under close inspection. Its robust flavor reflects the rugged Spanish countryside—floral, nutty, sweet, and savory all at once.
Made from unpasteurized sheep's milk.
