Our 1605 Manchego is made at the Sierra la Solana estate, an area of about 350 hectares, which includes vineyards, almond plantations and olive groves, 150km south of Madrid. Here you can find a 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 clean, rich-tasting milk with a sweet and malted cereal finish which translate into an elegant, fruity, intense flavours with a long finish.
The aroma of this minimum 5-month-matured Manchego is of butter and cereal. The paste is pale ivory, semi-hard and dense; the flavours are of sweet and rich ewes’ milk and raw almonds. It has a long, clean finish.
