Details

 

Born high in the mountains of Sierra del Cadiz, Grazalema is artisanally crafted from Payoya sheep that are indigenous to the area. The wheels are matured for a minimum of 5 months (but often much longer than that). During the long maturation, they get covered in ibérico lard and wheatgerm which hugely contribute to the final flavour of the cheese: it is definitely complex, nutty and caramelly with a pronounced brininess and zing. Enjoy with Madeira or sherry.
