Ponce de Leon Manchego Cheese 3 Months Old

This Ponce de Leon Manchego has a sweet, candied undertone that contributes to its popularity. Its flavor is zesty and exuberant, while its texture is firm but not dry. It is mild and creamy making it perfect for melting and nibbbling. Manchego is classically paired with quince paste but can also be shaved over salads or vegetables.

If there's one cheese from Spain every foodie should try, it's Manchego. This cheese is Spain's most popular, accounting for over a third of the country's traditional cheese production. Its rich yet approachable flavor has made it one of the most demanded cheeses on American cheese plates. This version is a young Manchego, aged for only 3 months. It's flavor is still buttery and nutty, but has more lemony tang than older versions, and a softer semi-firm texture. Truly scrumptious, this cheese can be used like a table cheese: keep a hunk in the fridge or on the kitchen table, and let folks nibble on it, or use for cooking, as an ingredient or just grated on top before serving. A must-try.
