Pago Los Vivales Black label
Maturation: 6-8 months
This cheese made with 100% raw ewe’s milk has a firm consistency and a hard, smooth natural rind. When cut, the cheese is a uniform ivory-white colour, without any darkening near the rind, and with occasional mechanical holes. It has a firm yet melt-in-the-mouth consistency, with the appearance of a young cheese and the intense and elegant flavour of one that has been matured for a long time. It has a sheepy flavour, clearly reflecting its origin, with a long-lasting and persistent aftertaste on the palate.
