Detailed Description for Mahon 8 lb. / 3.6 kg Spanish Cheese
Mahon Pasteurized Cow milk semi
APPROPRIATE WINES: Rioja Alta, Penedes, young cabernet. You can also try with
Semi soft cheese of Menorca Island. The flavor is mild and fruity and nutty
and becomes more intensive with age. Delicious as a snack, in sauces, salads,
pasta and fruits.
Mahon is produced on the Mediterranean island of Menorca in the Balearics. Although
it is a small island, Menorca produces enough cheese to make Mahon Spain's second
most popular cheese next to Manchego.
A 100% cow's milk cheese, Mahon comes in large squares of about 6 pounds. Ripened
in underground caves for at least 60 days, Mahon has a bold, magnificent flavor
that could never be called mild. The yellowish-orange rind conceals a soft,
slightly salty and decidedly spicy interior. This unique cheese is a must try
for any cheeselover and an absolute necessity for the true connoisseur. FOOD
