Details

This iconic raw ewes’ milk cheese from the Basque country is a real crowd pleaser. It is sweet, nutty, caramelly and wonderfully lingering. Its sweet and butterfatty elements appeal to casual cheese eaters, while the nutty complexity charms the sophisticated palates of cheese connoisseurs. The more it is aged the more character it develops. Ossau Iraty is at its best at 10-12 months of age. A lovely bottle of Bordeaux is a perfect match.
