This classic Spanish cheese is made in the Roncal Valley in Navarre (northern Spain) by Ekia, traditional cheesemakers since 1992.
It is certified by the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) - Roncal, meaning that it is made raw, whole sheep milk of the Rasa and Lacha breeds between the months of December to July.
It has a hard, natural rind covered with a layer of greyish mould. Its ivory white paste, which darkens slightly as the cheese ages, is firm, elastic and slightly grainy, with small, irregular holes. It has a somewhat sweet, herbaceous flavour, thanks to the natural pastures of wild grasses, herbs and flowers on which the sheep graze, as well as a slightly spicy and buttery flavour.
