Monte- Enebro 200g

9.00

Montenebro is a semi-pressed goat’s cheese log covered in ash and mould. The flavour is assertive, strong and salty. Because the paste retains a relatively high moisture content the cheese avoids many of the perceived negatives of strong goat’s cheese such as sharpness, soapiness or mouth-drying texture.

All the milk use in production comes from local herds. This strong, salty cheese is a recent, but welcome addition to the pantheon of Spanish cheese. It was created by Rafael Báez in the Val del Tietar. This remarkable man only began making cheese in 1982, at the age of 64! Under the tutelage of one of the most important cheesemakers in Spain, Enric Canut, Rafael gradually developed the award winning Monte Enebro. This wonderful cheese has enjoyed great success on export markets both in Europe and the USA. The business is now run by Rafael’s daughter.
