Pasteurized ewe milk

SKU: CHFW0030 Categories: , ,

Ossau-Iraty is a traditional, unpasteurised from the picturesque mountains of Pyrenees.

The region hold a fertile grazing land for the milk-giving ewes. It received an AOC protection in 1980. Two breeds of ewes must be used to maintain the AOP (Manech and Basco-Béarnaise).

The cheese is uncooked and pressed. Ossau-Iraty texture is semi-hard. The rind is thick, buff and marked with rust and gray molds. Beneath the brown and orange rind is an ivory white, supple and slightly grainy interior. The mouthfeel is creamy and buttery. During the winter flavours are herbaceous, nutty and fruity. Following summer, the cheeses tend to reveal aromas of grass and flowers.

Matured for at least 6 months, Ossau-Iraty often comes in a flat cylindrical shape.It tastes delicious with fruity red, full-bodied red or white wines such as Zinfandel, Tempranillo or Syrah.
