This DOP cheese is sometimes referred to as queixo do pays, meaning "cheese from the land." It is one of Galicia's trademark cheeses. Similar to Tetilla, it is made with milk collected from cows (typically the Rubia Gallega breed) that graze on the lush green pastures that blanket much of this northwestern part of Spain. Aged for only a couple of weeks, the cheese retains much of the acidic, buttery flavors of fresh milk. Combined with its unctuous texture, it is a simple yet deeply pleasing cheese to enjoy. Though generally considered mild, it has enough complexity - pleasing tang and fresh lactic flavor – to satisfy the connoisseur.
