manoura Sifnou

μανούρα Σίφνου

A buttery sheep and goat milk cheese from Sifnos that is ripened and then covered in wine sediments and stored in jars to mature, giving the cheese its unique spicy taste. The locals call it γλυκομένι μανούρα (gylomeni manoura). Designated PDO (ΠΟΠ)

If eaten young and not soaked in lees it's a softer, milder cheese called χλοραμανούρα (chloromanoura).
