Dinarski Sir Iz Maslinove Komine is a hard pasteurized mixed cow and goat milk cheese, aged for a minimum 6 months in pressed olive skins (pomace) from the Island of Skradin.
As the wheels age, the cheese absorbs the flavour and aroma of olives, handing over a rustic rind and an outstanding depth of flavour and nice rounded balance. Due to the result of the extra aging, Dinarski Sir Iz Maslinove Komine is denser and flecked with crunchy protein crystals. However, the influence of pomace still retains the creaminess in the cheese. Earthy notes counterbalance the delicious blend of cow and goat milk, creating a truly unique taste.
Prepared with vegetarian rennet, this artisan cheese pairs well with a Zlatan Plavac from Zlatan Otok and Zlatina from Toljanic.
