Torta La Serena - Extramadura - sheep's milk semi soft cheese, cut cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Spain.
A robust sheep's milk cheese produced in Extramadura, Spain. Its name is derived from the Spanish word for cake, "torta", which denotes the shape of this fine creamy cheese. Thistle is used in its manufacturing, infusing it with fresh herbal hints.
Aged for 60 days, it is soft, yet firm in texture, and has a slightly bitter taste that marries excellently with an earthy red wine, or Cabernet Sauvignon.
