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.
Due to the relatively small scale of our cheese and condiment producers, occasionally some cheeses and condiments may be unavailable and we will have to substitute them with similar products. Please state in the notes on the Cart page, if you do not wish to have any substitutions.
