Product Description

Mahon DO Reserva - pasteurized cow's milk semi-soft cheese. 1 lb/454 gr, Spain. This firm, sharp cow's milk cheese comes from the Balearic Island of Menorca in the Mediterranean. This exclusive version has been aged for 12 months developing a rich tanginess and fragrant aroma. Traditionally the orange rind on Mahon comes from being rubbed in butter, paprika and oil. When a cheese is aged, the taste intensifies and becomes bolder and nuttier. Typical Queso Mahon is aged in the caves of Menorca for 2 months. Reserva is aged for at least a year. It maintains a slightly briny, sharp taste but now becomes hard and granular, on par with parmesan. Reserva can be grated over pasta or served as a table cheese with olive oil, black pepper and tarragon. Compliments: Traditional tapas fare works well with this outstanding aged mahon, especially Serrano, Marcona Almonds and plump, juicy olives. Appropriate wines: Big red Rioja or a full-bodied Pinot Noir. Percentage of Fat: 55%
