SKU: 112 Category: Tags: ,


Made by 2 brothers  Heli y Mikel Aznárez Lus ,Roncal is a Spanish/ Basque cheese made in the Roncal Valley, in the North of Navarra within the Basque territory, near the French border. It is protected by the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) in which the cheese should be made only between the months from December to July from raw sheep’s milk of Rasa and Lacha breeds.

This cheese is matured for around 10 months. It has an initial sweet, herbaceous flavour, thanks to the natural pastures of wild grasses, herbs and flowers on which the sheep graze. The initial sweetness gives way to a lingering savoury tanginess.
