Tezacki Iz Mosta is a hard pasteurized Dalmatian cow milk cheese, aged for a minimum 6 months in pressed red wine grapes from one of Croatia's most renowned wine producers, Boskinac, on the Island of Pag.
As the wheels age, it hands over the cheese a pungent purple rind complemented by a unique sweet and delicate aroma and taste with a softer, supple texture. The cheese is characterised by purple and red dots on the rind and the aroma of the wine with the natural grassy tones of the cow milk. The flavour is memorable, nutty, fresh, sweet and with a deeply complex and an exceptionally smooth finish.
Prepared with vegetarian rennet, this artisan cheese pairs well with a red Plavac Mali from Plancic or white Marastina wine from Skaulj.
