This artisanal soft cheese is made with raw ewe’s milk, vegetal rennet from the thistle flower and salt. It has a smooth, thin and edible rind. The cheese is preserved in special breathable packaging and retains a cloth covering, used to prevent the paste from escaping whilst the rind hardens.

It has a soft flavour but with intense personality and the small bitter touches typical of vegetable rennet.

To fully enjoy the texture, aroma and taste leave at room temperature before eating. We recommend cutting a lid in the surface and taking it by the spoonful or spreading it on bread. It can also be taken with fresh fruits, raisins or dates. For pairing, the ideal would be a sweet wine or a good port, a great companion to fatty and tasty cheeses like this one.
