Semi-mature Mahon Cheese Mercadal
Mahon is a semi cured cow’s milk cheese aged for 3 months and is also known as Queso Mahón-Menorca, (because of its origin), it represents the excellence in Menorcan cheese from Balearic island. It is full flavoured with a creamy lactose note that fills your mouth with the sweetness of milk. It is great in cooking sandwiches or pizzas. It comes as a pressed cheese paste, with parallelepiped shape with rounded edges. Combining sobrasada (a fermented chorizo) with melted mahon is an excellent match with toast or in a crunchy roll.
This cheese goes fabulous with dry white or rosé wines.
Firm texture, easy to cut. Of medium-intense aroma reminiscent of fresh milk and butter. Mild taste which can be reminiscent of yogurt, caramel and olive oil.
