Oro Bailen Reserva Familiar Arbequina: A new outstanding mono-varietal oil extra virgin olive oil pressed from 100% Arbequina olives grown on the estate of award-winning producer, Galgón 99 SL. The Gálvez González family spent a great deal of time and care meticulously perfecting the quality of their Arbequina olive oil to match that of their world-class Picual olive oil. This brand new oil from Oro Bailen is sure to impress those already familiar with the unbeatable quality the company delivers year after year. This Arbequina oil delivers aromas of tropical fruits, banana and sweet almond. It is incredibly balanced in fruitiness and pungency and is the perfect oil to complement lighter dishes such as white fish, steamed vegetables, green salads and is even ideal for desserts and fruit salads.
Oro Bailen Reserva Familiar Picual: A consistent front-runner on the international award-circuit, including the prestigious Mario Solinas awards, this is not your ordinary Picual. A truly outstanding oil in a first class of its own, this extra virgin olive oil is produced in the olive groves located in the foothills of the Sierra Morena, the northern mountain range in the province of Jaén. Harvested at the beginning of November at their optimal point of ripeness, this oil has exceptionally high organoleptic characteristics, making it stand out above other oils due to the intensity of its fruity flavor and the complexity of its aromas, which include tomato, apple, banana, green almond, fig and freshly cut grass. Herbaceous and fruity, it is an exceptional balance between bitter and spicy.
