Manchego cheese

Manchego cheese is a sheep's milk cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain. Manchego is aged for 3 months or longer, and is a semi-firm cheese with a rich golden color and small holes. It comes in a ten inch diameter wheel, five inches thick, with a herringbone design on the inedible rind caused by the surface of the press used in the manufacturing process. It ranges from mild to sharp, depending on how long it is aged.
