Manchego is undoubtedly Spain's most famous cheese. It is made only on the plain of La Mancha from the milk of the Manchego sheep which graze on the shrubs and grasses of the Dahesa and produce a thick, aromatic milk that gives Manchego a unique and distinctive character. The colour is ivory to pale yellow. The taste is very characteristic, well developed, but not too strong, buttery and slightly piquant, with a sheep milk aftertaste. The shape is cylindrical, with flat top and bottom surfaces engraved with the typical "flower" left by the wooden presses.
