Soft-ripened Sheep Cheese from Miraflores
This soft-ripened sheep cheese from the mountainous area of Miraflores, in Madrid, is covered in a silky white mold. It is produced with milk collected in nearby farms and is all-natural, with no preservatives.
The texture is extremely creamy like a Brie cheese. The sheep milk flavor is balanced and delicate though long-lasting with an aftertaste of mushrooms and nuts. It is mild when young growing creamier with a more developed taste when aged.
This delicacy is also available made with goat milk. Also see our award-winning goat cheese made from press paste from the same dairy.
It pairs well with dry white wines, cava and wheat beers. It is fantastic spread on crunchy toasted bread.
Ripeness: 10-20 days
Packaging: Wax paper
