Urgelia Washed Rind DOP (Approx 2.4kg)

Producer: Urgelia

Origin: Catalonia

Milk: Cow

Style: Semi-firm

Urgèlia is the only cheese in Catalonia that has been granted the Protected Designation of Origin (DOP Formatge de l’Alt Urgell i la Cerdanya) for its high-quality, guaranteed origin and heritage. It is made with fresh pasteurised cows milk, collected every day from the Pyrenees.

Although this is a washed rind cheese, it does not resemble the pungent, orange rind oozy cheeses that this category is normally associated with. This cheese has a slightly nutty flavour with balanced acidity and saltiness. Its great on a cheese board, and also melts beautifully.
