Our 1605 Manchego is made at the Sierra la Solana estate, an area of about 350 hectares including vineyards, almond plantations and olive groves, 150km South of Madrid. Here you can find a traditional rustic Mediterranean vegetation as well as a harsh and extreme climatic environment, ideal for the native Manchega sheep to roam about. The result is a clean, rich tasting milk with a sweet and malted cereal finish which translate into an elegant, fruity, intense flavours with a long finish.

This 11 month minimum matured Manchego has aromas of leather and lanolin, the paste is dense and, on occasion, crystalline. It has a complex savoury flavour with hints of caramel and spices and a long, intense finish.
