Arribes del Duero cheese
Arribes del Duero is an unpasteurised ewes’ milk cheese from the provinces of Salamanca and Zamora along the river Duero. For the most part, it is the milk of the Churra breed of sheep which is used and it is one of the few Spanish cheeses which is made with vegetarian rennet.
Cylindrical in shape the cheese weighs between 1.5 and 2.5 kg come in three stages of maturity: mild (2 to 6 months), mature (6 to 12 months) and extra mature (over 12 months). The rind of the mild version has the same colour as the interior, but the other two varieties have a yellowish rind which becomes mouldy due to their being matured in cold, damp conditions.
The interior of the cheese is buttery and compact with the flavour becoming stronger and spicier with age.
