This fine cheese is made on the Mediterranean island of Menorca (Balearic Islands) in the village of Mahon, using exclusively ‘Menorquina’ and ‘Frisona’ cow’s milk.
The manufacturing process consists of enzymatic coagulation and pressed paste, not cooked.
It is shaped into squares, and has a characteristic yellowish-orange coloured rind. This cheese has a distinctive sharp, milky, slightly acid and salty flavour.
It is paired excellently with both white and red wines, as well as sweet wines made with Moscatel and Malvasia.
