Wine Pairing: Ossau Iraty cheese is complimented by a full-bodied, fruity red like, Zinfandel, Tempranillo or Syrah.
Un fromage super.. This is a tasty cheese with a great texture. It's a firm cheese, but slices well, without crumbling.
Deliss had my cheese order of several French cheeses delivered all the way to Tasmania in only 36 hours! Deliss posted the cheeses inside a cold storage box, late on a Tuesday evening, & they arrived at my place first thing on the Thursday morning. Wonderful service! Most impressed.
