Cabrales PDO” Blue Cheese

 

Description

The most famous and strongest Spanish Blue Cheese, made from raw sheep’s and cows milk, plus penicillium roqueforti mould and matured in caves in the Picos de Europa, Asturias.

Ideal in salads, with honey and/or nuts, simply enjoyed with bread or even for cooking.

 

Pairing

This type of cheese is ideal drunk with strong wines. A sparkling wine is perfect with this too as it refreshes the mouth and eliminates any excess fatty taste.

 

Sensorial

Complex – soft and creamy, yet crumbly. Intense taste which suggest fermented fruit, mould and yeast, with a tangy, spicy aftertaste.
