Artisan Roncal cheese

Roncal cheese is a semi-hard cheese from sheep's milk produced from beginning to end in the municipalities of Isaba and Uztárroz, in the Valley of the Roncal, Navarre.

This is a cheese with a smooth, hard, thick, straw-colored rind covering a bone-colored paste, with numerous very small irregular holes, and rough, dry and elastic to the touch.

In its taste, persistence, and high intensity, matured sheep's milk is completely identified, a little acidic, and the aroma of chewing reminds one of dried fruit, pineapple or cider.

Roncal cheese has great versatility in its use. You can eat it by itself, paired with a good wine from Navarra, or complementing dishes in desserts or with smoked meats, dried fruit, pasta, etc.
