Don Bernardo Manchego

President Don Bernardo Manchego is a semi-hard PDO cheese made using 100% pasteurized sheep's milk in the Castilla-La Mancha region of Spain. It has a firm and dry ivory coloured interior that is characterized by irregularly spaced small eyelets. The rind is recognizable by its distinctive basket weave pattern on the sides, a result of the traditional esparto grass used for the moulds. Don Bernardo Manchego boasts of delicate herbal notes and overtones of nuts with a pronounced peppery body.

The Manchego sold by President is a 6-9 month aged "Viejo", meaning it has a more complex, rich and lingering flavour. When purchasing, make sure to look for the PDO label, as this assures an authentic Manchego cheese.

Enjoy Don Bernardo Manchego with full-flavoured fruits, fruit pastes, and cured meats, vegetables, on bread or crackers. Pale Ales, Wheat Beer, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo will do full justice to the complex flavours of Manchego.
