Young Sheep Cheese 'Blue Label' - Sierra de Albarracin
Young Sheep Cheese 'Blue Label' by Sierra de Albarracin
This young cheese is made exclusively from fresh pasteurized sheep’s milk, from the own livestock of dairy sheep at Sierra de Albarracin, considered one of the best cheesemakers in Spain.
The cheese is made from a firm pressed paste, obtained by predominantly enzymatic coagulation and aged with bacterial flora from the lactic acid.
After an aging period of maximum 2 months for the small cheese and 4 months for the larger one, we obtain a product called ‘Blue Label’. The cheese has a pale golden colour, with medium-sized eyes and a smell of slightly evolved milk. It has a relatively low salt content.
The ‘Blue Label’ indicates that the cheese undergoes a finishing period of over 4 months, giving it a mild flavour, although the texture remains with the proper consistency for this type of curing.
It has a smooth natural rind that varies in colour from straw to gray, produced by the surface flora that develops in the curing chambers.
* Due to the artisanal nature of these cheeses, the weights displayed are approximate.
