Torta Del Casar

$50.00/Lb


The pudding-like paste of the Torta del Casar is so gooey, you’ll need a spoon to enjoy it properly. Made from raw sheep’s milk, it develops a semi-firm outer crust. Its aroma—sweet honey mixed with a distinct vegetal funkiness—will get your mouth watering. Buttery notes, roasted artichoke, and a hint of brine and bitterness mingle together. It brims with complex flavor. This is a cheese worth savoring, so spoon some onto slices of fresh bread and complement it with a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc.

Each Torta Del Casar is approximately 1.1 lb. Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb. ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, or an intact portion, please contact the Murray’s team at orders@murrrayscheese.com at least 72 hours prior to the date of shipment.

  • Cider

    Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.

    English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
    Pair with: Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.


    Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
    Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.


    American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.
    Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleu Mont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.

  • Sauvignon Blanc

    Typically bright and lemony, with clean citrus flavors. Can also have grassy and vegetal aromas (think green bell pepper).

    Pair with: Soft, creamy goat milk cheeses, triple crèmes or mixed milk cheeses with a mineral edge, like Nettle Meadow Kunik or La Tur.


  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!

    Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
