This Manchego Viejo is a semi-hard, sheep's milk cheese, from Spain. True Manchego is produced only from the milk of the Manchega sheep. The Manchega sheep graze on dry pasture and brush fields on a high plateau outside of the cities southeast of Madrid. It is aged 9 months and has a rich, deep, flavor accompanied by a zesty and slightly salty taste. Its texture is crumbly.
