Tasting Notes from the Curator

Unlike its pasteurized counterparts, the highlight of Finca La Prudenciana Queso de Oveja Curado is its use of raw sheep’s milk brimming with an undiluted celebration of all the flavors nature intended. The essence of nuts and grass in the aroma bring forth an intimate encounter with La Mancha’s farmlands. Its fatty yet generous flavor gives it an indulgent richness, counterbalanced exquisitely with hints of acidity and a touch of spiciness. As time graces its maturation process, the smooth creamy texture develops marbling patterns, unveiling intricate layers of taste. Each morsel is an exploration of quintessential La Mancha, as it presents a symphony of various tastes and a parade of textures that dance on the palate.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Spanish Cava: The crispness of Cava harmonizes splendidly with the creamy texture, with its effervescence elegantly cleaning the palate.
  • White Wine: Dry and aromatic white wines, such as Albariño or Verdejo, provide a refreshing contrast, matching the slightly salty notes of the cheese.
  • Light Red Wine: The subtle intricacies of light-bodied red wines like Tempranillo or Pinot Noir complement the cheese without overpowering its flavors.
  • Bread: Serving with crusty pieces of traditional Spanish Pan de Cristal enhances the full-bodied taste of the cheese.

    An Emblem of Tradition and Innovation

Each wheel of Finca La Prudenciana Queso de Oveja Curado is an insignia of a family’s passion and craft, passed down generations. Sourced in La Mancha, Spain, the cheese is a blend of traditional crafting, infused with a distinct flavor-accentuating innovation - the use of raw sheep’s milk. Unlike many cured sheep cheeses, the decision to use raw sheep’s milk was driven by the brand’s desire to intensify the taste profile, thus bestowing upon the cheese a pronounced and robust flavor that sets it apart. Each step of the production elucidates a marriage between the modern wisdom of cheese-making and the age-old traditions of La Mancha.

Storage Instructions

To ensure the quality and longevity of Finca La Prudenciana Queso de Oveja Curado, it should be stored in a cool, slightly humid environment at a consistent temperature of 4°C to 8°C (39°F to 46°F).
