Is Haloumi supposed to be super salty?

I bought some haloumi today for the first time and OMG was it salty. It was like eating sea water, ten times as salty as feta, I literally could feel my blood pressure spiking. I tried to rinse it then pan fry it but alas it was still inedible .Maybe I was unfortunate enough to buy a bad batch or maybe I'm unaware of some preparation technique to mellow it out. Please enlighten me because I actually enjoyed the texture and the taste but could not handle the saltiness.
