Back to Cow

Aged mahon PDO “Mercadal”

 

Description

Square cheese from Menorca made from pasteurised cow’s milk and aged to form a buttery firm texture. Miniature sold with its lid pre-cut and including special knife to make a great aperitif. A versatile, delicious PDO cheese which can be consumed in flakes or sliced.

Ideal above as an aperitif (with crisp white wine or cava) or with salads, carpaccio, pasta, risottos or for cooking in a sauce. Makes a more buttery and economical alternative to parmesan. Also fabulous sliced on a cheese table. Figs and grapes accompany particularly well.

Pairing

This cheese goes fabulous with crisp white or rosé wines.

Sensorial
Firm, hard and flaky texture. Intense aroma reminiscent of butter, leather and wood.
