Description: Ossau-Iraty is a firm, sheep’s-milk cheese that is produced in south-western France in the Northern Basque Country and in Béarn. It is one of only two sheep’s milk cheeses granted AOC status in France, aside from Roquefort.
Ossau Iraty is a very flavourful cheese which lends itself to tasting on a cheese platter or eating with a meal. Ossau-Iraty is creamy and buttery in the mouth with flavors of nuts, fruits and herbs.
Weight: Approx. 200g/ piece
Wine Pairing: This cheese pairs well with wines such as Sauvignon Blancs, a Madirans, or Merlots.
Our cheeses can be kept for at least a week from the date of delivery. After opening the initial wrapping paper, we recommend to store the cheeses in a clean, dry cling wrap and store them in the lower compartment of the fridge which is usually not too cold or dry.
