Manchego Cheese 8 Months

Ponce de Leon Manchego has a sweet, candied undertone that contributes to its popularity. Manchego is classically paired with quince paste but can also be shaved over salads or vegetables.
Although Manchego production is regulated, the guidelines are broad enough that a cheese's final flavor and texture span a huge range. All Manchego must be produced from the milk of the Manchega sheep and has a braided basket-weave imprint in the wax rind (which isn't recommended for eating). Manchego can be aged from sixty days to fourteen or more months; rinds may be treated with wax or other protective substances; milk can be raw or pasteurized; production can be automated or handmade. The upshot is this: Manchego is rarely offensive. It's usually quite approachable and snackable; and with increased age comes increased piquancy, spice, and granularity. Ponce de Leon Manchego has a sweet, candied undertone that contributes to its popularity. Manchego is classically paired with quince paste but can also be shaved over salads or vegetables.
