MAHÓN TIERNO [MATURE]

MINORCA

PASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

The cheese has a distinctive quality due to the salty humidity on the island. Traditionally stored and aged in underground caves, the farmers have, over centuries, become masterful at changing the humidity and temperatures so that the cheeses reach an ideal state. Rubbed in oil and paprika during the aging process, the interior pate takes on a tangy edge to the flavour, with a rounder, nuttier aroma. We like to pair our mature Mahón with walnuts, as the full, slightly bitter taste of the nut is balanced beautifully by the saltier notes of the cheese.
