Zigljen Iz Extra Mature is a premium Zigljen, further matured for minimum 8 months. Zigljen is hard pasteurized cheese made from a blend of a cow (80%) and sheep (20%) milk. The extra mature version has an added complexity and strength complemented by a texture which is much harder and crumbly. The flavours are a delicate balance between sweet and salt with a long finish to the last.

Prepared with vegetarian rennet, this artisan cheese pairs well with a white Malvasia from Degrassi and red Curvee from Vina Vrsaljko.
