Idiazabal smoked artisan raw milk cheese is a classic from the Basque Country. It is a cheese that brings us the pastures and landscapes of the mountains and valleys of the Basque Country. Slightly smoke and with floral notes. Intense aromas and taste. Is a sheep’s milk and hand made cheese that has a hard inedible outer rind.
Goes very well with dry white wines or young red ones.
The flavor of Idiazabal cheese is intense with a marked “aged sheep’s milk” character and some natural rennet flavor . It has a spicy tone and there must be an absence of bitterness. Its salinity is medium. After a tasting, it leaves a lingering aftertaste of its characteristic flavor.
