Our 1605 Manchego is made at the Sierra la Solana estate, 150km south of Madrid. Here you can find traditional, rustic Mediterranean vegetation, as well as a harsh and extreme climatic environment, ideal for the native Manchega sheep to roam about. The result is a clean, rich-tasting milk with a sweet and malted cereal finish, which translates into elegant, fruity, intense flavours with a long finish.
This 11-month minimum matured Manchego has aromas of leather and lanolin. The paste is dense and, on occasion, crystalline. It has a complex savoury flavour with hints of caramel and spices and a long, intense finish.
