Dive into the rich tapestry of Queso San Simòn da Costa Merco DOP, a culinary gem shaped by the rolling hills and robust traditions of Galicia, Spain. Indulge in a cheese that articulates its story with every smoky, creamy note.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

The Queso San Simòn da Costa Merco DOP unfurls its essence as it rests on the palate, allowing the discerning consumer to traverse the bucolic majesty of Northwest Spain with every taste. The primary smoky characteristics, tenderly imparted by birch wood embers, cradle a buttery creaminess sourced from the milk of the revered Rubia Gallega, Pardo-Alpina, and Frisona breeds. A secondary billow of mild sweetness with a tangy finale speaks to the cheese’s adept balance, while an undercurrent of nuttiness and a whisper of spiciness, age-dependent, add layers of complexity. The textural landscape boasts a firm foundation emblematic of semi-hard cheeses, with younger iterations leaning into a more elastic, moist creaminess. The tertiary granular discovery within this creamy bastion features tiny holes scattered amidst its yellowish-whiteheart, encased by a rind that is as thin and smooth as the early morning mists that cloak the Galician hills.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Cheese Platters: Accentuate with figs, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey. Serve alongside crusty bread and a bold Rioja.
  • Wine Selections: Enjoy with crisp whites or a peppery Tempranillo.
  • Culinary Integration: Melts beautifully into risottos or crowns a savory tart. Elevates sandwiches to gourmet fare.

    Whispers of Smoke and Heritage

Queso San Simòn da Costa embodies Galicia’s dairy prowess and its affinity for the smoky nuances imparted by birch wood. Each wheel is a testament to the land’s natural bounty and the harmonious balance achieved between time-honored methods and the idyllic climatic conditions where Atlantic breezes dance across verdant pastures.

Storage Instructions
