Before deciding to buy our picual organic extra virgin olive oil you may want to know a little bit about the characteristics and tasting notes of this EVOO.
This EVOO is produced at an olive grove that is between 10 and 40 years old. This first plantation of olive trees in Suerte Alta was undertaken 100 years ago. The current owner, Manuel Heredia Halcón, continued the tradition with this new intensive plantation of picual trees.
What is characteristic of this EVOO is its high content of polyphenols, reaching in years of drought the 1400 mg/kg. This is a variety endemic of the Denomination of Origin Baena, one of the oldest denominations of origin of Spain.
Our Picual has a medium bitterness and pungent attributes with hints of almonds, tomato and citrus.
Medium intensity with hints of chlorophylls, both of olive leaves and herbs. Harmonious to the palate and evolves towards ripe almonds.
