Cumbre of Trujillo
A provocation for the senses is what this cheese has to offer. Made from pasteurized sheep’s milk following a century old recipe inherited from the wisest shepherds of the area. Its appearance, ivory white with small irregular eyes scattered throughout its creamy but consistent texture, anticipates the pleasure that will be provided to the senses. With its grand aromatic richness it brings back memories of fresh milk, curd and butter, subtle aromas of nuts and vanilla, of toffee and spicy herbs. The sensation on the pallet is smooth, with a warm, oily, pleasant impression. An honest flavour, but well balanced, with recollections of well evolved sheep’s milk curd and spicy, herbal hints at the end.
