    200 g wedge of Hacienda Zorita artisan Cured Dehesa Reserva cheese made from raw sheep's milk, from organic farm, produced in the town of Valverdón (Salamanca), Castile and Leon.

    Pressed cheese, made with raw milk from local sheep's milk. Matured for 10 to 12 months - Enzymatic coagulation. Carefully cured for 12 months using a traditional culinary technique, with a clean, balanced and intense aroma.

    The main characteristic of this cheese is that it is made in the traditional way from raw 'chura' sheep's milk, with the addition of natural rennet. It is matured and preserved by master cheesemakers who, despite the advances in technology, jealously guard the traditional methods of production.

    It is characterised by its appearance when cut, with a large number of heterogeneously distributed holes, a pleasant aroma and a clear flavour, in which acidic and salty flavours can be perceived within the elementary ones, with spicy trigeminal sensations. The persistence in the mouth is long with a slow evolution, leaving a pleasant aftertaste.

    In the mouth, very elegant acidity and light sweetness, combined with herbaceous notes of dry hay, ideal to combine with toasted nuts, with bread and white wines fermented in barrel or aged and reserve red wines.

    Ideally, it should be kept in the refrigerator protected by its original wrapping or greaseproof paper. If it is not going to be consumed immediately, it is advisable to wrap it in a cloth slightly dampened with salt water to prevent drying, loss of butteriness and flavour.

    It is advisable to eat the cheese at a temperature between 20 and 22°C and tempered 1 or 2 hours before.

    Once the tasting is finished, the cheese is stored again, covering the cut with double plastic film or food-use paper to protect it.
