The ‘older’ sibling of Manchego, a full year of aging brings out the nutty, caramel flavor of the cheese. It has a lovely sharpness and a deep, rich pepperiness. Firm enough to grate. Delicious to pair with other tapas and added to a charcuterie board. We also love to drink a Rioja alongside of it.

There are many great ways to serve your manchego cheese -- an iconic sheep's milk cheese in Spanish gastronomy. First, ensure it is at room temperature. You can then add it to a cheese platter (cutting it in triangles vertically along the brine) paired alongside picos artesanos, crusty bread or a fruit garnish. You can also add your sliced manchego cheese to tapa dishes or pintxos, pairing it with jamón serrano, chorizo ibérico or Spanish vegetables. Don't forget to add a nice Spanish wine to your spread!
Refrigerate upon arrival. Keep stored in fridge before and after consuming. Before enjoying your cheese, let it sit outside of cold storage for 30 minutes. If storing your cheese after consuming, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or cloth and place back it back in refrigeration.
