It is one of the most known and appreciated Portuguese cheeses, with an aroma and exquisite taste. It is produced with raw milk from the Bordaleira sheep (it can also be churra Mondegueira milk), and it takes 45 days for the cheese to mature. Depending on this period, the cheese can be more buttery or denser, have a soft or semi-soft, white or slightly yellow paste. Its appearance is uniform (without or with a few holes) obtained by the slow draining of the curd after coagulation of the raw milk, thistle and salt. It is cylindrical and flat, and features a well formed, smooth and thin soft crust. Its weight can fluctuate between 700 grams to 1 kilo.
