Terrincho Cheese (DOP)

Originating from the Trás-os-Montes region of Portugal, this sheep’s milk cheese is characterized by a cylindrical shape and a flat, even rind that's covered with paprika. Inside, the straw colored flesh has an oily texture and a soft, smooth flavor. One variety of Terrincho is cured in wooden barrels filled with rye to give it a distinctive rye taste.
