Ossau Iraty

Ossau Iraty is a classic sheep's milk cheese made in France with the milk of the Manech and Basco-Bearnaise ewes.

While it complies with strict Appellation d'Origine Controlée (AOC) regulations, the shape of each wheel can vary from region to region.

Ossau is aged for a minimum of ninety days until its paste has turned a luscious ivory; its fragrance is reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts, and its taste encapsulates the sweet, buttery flavors that a great sheep's milk cheese can deliver.

This cheese pairs nicely with many wines, especially Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot.
