Ossau Iraty AOC
Ossau Iraty AOC is a smooth, semi-hard cheese with distinctly nutty flavours and a lingering caramel sweetness. Its earthy, aromatic rind is typical of ewe’s and goat’s milk cheeses made in the Pyrénées. The floral aftertaste is reminiscent of the pastures of wildflowers and fresh grass in the region.
A little history about Ossau Iraty
Ossau Iraty is made in the rugged mountains known as the Basque region, on the border between France and Spain. The black- and red-faced Manech ewes, which are renowned for their magnificent curled horns, are milked twice each day from the end of Spring to early Autumn.
