Tezacki Sir Extra Mature

Tezacki Sir Extra Mature is a hard pasteurized Dalmatian cow milk cheese, aged for a minimum 6 months. This gives the cheese quite a brittle texture which is perfect for grating over hot dishes. Prepared from vegetarian rennet, this artisan cheese has a robust and nutty mouth feel with a slight sweetness that comes from the cows grazing on higher pastures.

Pair this delicious cheese with white Malvasia wine from Skaulj or a red Plavac Mali from Plancic. Tezacki Sir Extra Mature is a bronze medal winner at the World Cheese Awards in the UK in 2012.
