Soft cheese from Galicia made with cow's milk and mixed coagulation. Traditional shape, elastic and creamy texture. Smooth, lactic and fatty flavor.
Wine pairing: Light wines both white and red (with little aging in the latter). The fines and chamomiles of Andalusia as well as the sweet wines of Moscatel and Malvasía also harmonize well.
A minimum of 3 months from shipment.
Tetilla is an interesting cheese to look at in its characteristic shallow conical form. I suspect this evoked the name. The cheese has a lovely smooth, almost spreadable centre with firmer cheese near the rind. It is a very mild flavoured cheese and pairs well with fresh fruit. A nice breakfast cheese.
Received chilled as promised. Looking forward to enjoying it over Christmas.
