Don Julián Viejo Manchego cheese is made with the best raw materials and the know-how of our master cheesemakers. A cheese made with fresh pasteurised milk, freshly milked, 100% from Manchego sheep, which receive the best care and attention from our farmers in the heart of the Mancha region of Cuenca. It is matured for a minimum of 6 months, with the pampering of our artisans. A careful, balanced and fine-tuned cheese, highly valued by chefs, gourmet experts and the general public.
Appearance: Hard, straw yellow rind, coloured in a dark brown tone. It shows the impressions of the moulds or "pleitas" on the lateral surface and of the "flor" on the flat sides, the paste is firm and compact with a shade between straw yellow, honey and ivory, and may have eyes unevenly distributed throughout the cheese matrix.
In the mouth, its texture is buttery, without being doughy, with a perfect balance of flavour, with notes of walnut and wood, which is highly valued by chefs, gourmets and the general public.
