Zigljen Iz Mosta is a premium 3-month aged Zigljen, further matured for minimum 8 months in pressed red wine grapes from one of Croatia's most renowned wine producers Boskinac, on the Island of Pag. Zigljen is hard pasteurized mixed cow (80%) and sheep (20%) milk cheese with deep yellow rind and a granular texture. It has an intense and complex taste complemented by a slightly spicy finish.

As the wheels of Zigljen Iz Mosta age, it hands over the cheese a pungent purple rind complemented by a unique sweet and delicate aroma and taste with a softer, supple texture.

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