An award-winning, specially-crafted blend of Organic Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual olives picked between the end of October and beginning of November. The oils are then stored in 2,000 liter deposits where they are analyzed, then selected in varying quantities, and finally blended by the Master Taster to create a superb olive oil with a limited production. The result is a leafy green and golden oil with a bouquet of freshly cut grass, tomato, green olive with hints of citrus and dried fruits. Its taste is well-balanced and medium to smooth in intensity with a pleasant, slightly spicy aftertaste.
