Portugese Cheese: St. George from Matos Cheese

Matos Cheese in Santa Rosa, California was founded by a Portuguese immigrants who started a dairy with a herd of 45 cows. They now produce a Portuguese style cheese known as St. George which I was lucky enough to receive as a gift. St. George is a hard cheese with a complex, nutty flavor. It's like a more flavorful variation of the Spanish Machego. This was a really wonderful cheese and was a good accompaniment to some Arrogant Bastard Ale I had on hand.

Check it out.
