Zimbro is a Portuguese artisanal cheese produced from raw sheep's milk in the Serra da Estrela Mountains, centre north of Portugal. This thistle-rennet cheese is creamy in texture with a washed, thin, pale straw-coloured rind. The cheese is aged for 60 days to produce a thick, pudding-like interior highlighted by a clean, perfumed aroma with a sweet, piquant and herbaceous finish. Enjoy the cheese with a glass of Crianza Rioja.
