Spanish Manchego Cheese

Officially known as Queso Manchego, Manchego Cheese is a delicious Spanish hard cheese made from the milk of sheep of the Manchega breed. Manchego Cheese is a Spanish Cheese which originates from the La Mancha region of Spain.

Manchego Cheese is one of Spain's most famous and most popular cheeses. Manchego Cheese is also a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) cheese in the European Union.

A Distinctive Look and Taste

Traditional Spanish esparto grass molds are used to make Manchego Cheese which leaves a very distinctive imprinted zigzag pattern along the side of the cheese. Manchego Cheeses themselves have a buttery texture and the distinctive creamy flavour of sheep's milk that leaves a pleasant aftertaste on the palate.

Types of Manchego Cheese

Manchego Cheese comes in a variety of different flavours depending on the age of the cheese itself. There are four types of Manchego Cheeses available:

Fresco – This version of Manchego Cheese is aged for only 2 weeks. This type of Manchego Cheese is rarely found outside Spain.

Semicurado – This version of Manchego Cheese is a semi-firm cheese aged for three weeks to three months.

Curado – This version of Manchego Cheese is a semi-firm cheese aged for three to six months.

Viejo - This version of Manchego Cheese is aged for one year making it firm with a sharper flavour the longer it is aged.

How to Eat Manchego Cheese

The intense taste texture of Manchego Cheese make it perfect to eat on a cheese board with crusty bread. The Manchego Cheese can also be served with olives, sun-dried tomatos, salad or paired with walnuts, almonds or pecan nuts. Manchego cheeses are best paired with a sherry or a robust red wine like Rioja.
