Sheep's Milk
Aged: 1 month

Most sheep’s milk cheeses enjoy long affinage periods that instill them with their typical nutty, sheepy, gritty characteristics.  Conversely, Primo Sale (“first salt”) elucidates the effects of reduced aging.  During its short time in the cheese cellar, the two-pound rindless wheel develops a lightly sheepy & delicate flavor paired with a softer, creamier texture that coats your mouth.
