    Multiple award winner La Retorta cheese is a soft paste cheese with a round shape made of raw sheep's milk cheese pressed by hand and elaborated with artisan mime in the traditional way. Its taste is soft but very personal, well defined, and persistent on the palate, with memories of the field due to its vegetal rennet. It is very creamy, with almost liquid texture, as the result of a daily and continuous tumbling. It melts deliciously on the palate. It is to be eaten with a spoon, opening the top cover of the cheese, or spreading it in toasted bread although it also offers multiple applications in the culinary scope.

    La Retorta cheese has an ivory color and intense, soft, penetrating taste but without too much bitterness. The flavour of the cheese is characterised for being not slated, without acid Matic, with certain touches of partially fermented milk. Its aroma is strong but nice with vegetable and floral matices according to the time of the year or sheep.

    Finca Pascualete is a family-run business whose origins date back to the beginning of the XIII Century. In 1232 Don Fernán Ruiz Altamirano, after helping in the conquest of Trujillo, was given this land that is today Finca Pascualete, located in the heart of Extremadura’s pasture lands.

    From the town of Trujillo (Cáceres), Extremadura.
