The island of Lanzarote, at the eastern end of the Canary Islands, is the closest to Africa and has a volcanic landscape. In the middle of the island, in a desert formed by dark lava, you will find Finca de Uga, an agricultural and livestock oasis. A model farm where 300 Majoreras goats, 300 Canarian sheep and 20 cows of Jersey breed are milked, and with their milk an endless number of cheeses are produced in small volumes. Like this Alegranza, a cured and pure goat’s milk cheese in its pimentonado (with paprika) variant.
Cheese of medium flavor but well defined and personal, oily in the mouth, with lactic and citric notes and a spicy touch where the paprika gives a very peculiar and elegant aroma .It marries very well with all kinds of white wines aged in barrels and with generous and delicious sherry style wines.
