Monte Enebro is 100% artisan, handmade by father daughter team Rafael & Paloma Baez. As a retired builder Rafael started making his cheese over 15 years ago and has never looked back with it quickly becoming popular first in Spain, then the world over.  Production is limited to approximately 7000 units per year, meaning it is relatively rare in Australia.


The Baezes make Monte Enebro from pasteurized goats’ milk and inoculate the logs with penicilium roqueforti, the same mold used to make Roquefort. However, rather than piercing the cheese in the traditional way and allowing the blue veins to develop throughout, the mold grows on the rind of the cheese, adding to Monte Enebro's complex flavors and distinctive ashed appearance.


When Young, the interior is pure white and has a chalky flaky texture. Flavours are mild, nutty and citric with just a hint of blue at the rind. As the cheese matures, cellar-like aromas become more pungent and the flavours evolve. Strong and assertive, a mature Monte Enebro is not for the faint hearted with heavy goat, barnyard and blue spice flavours dominating.


This cheese is best consumed within days of being cut from the log.
