The latest addition to the award-winning line of extra virgin olive oils from Castillo de Canena. Pressed from Picual olives, herbaceous notes of grasses and vegetables prevail in this fresh, lively and expressive oil. Olive leaf, lettuce and artichoke are the primary notes with fresh fruits, tomato vine and a heady touch of green banana and apple on the finish. Castillo de Canena has been making grand efforts on their estate in recent years in order to obtain Biodynamic certification including introducing sheep on their estate, manufacturing their own fertilizer through composting, and enriching the vegetal cover by installing beehives. Biodynamic agriculture is a step forward from the organic farming method. This method is based on the harmonization between the different forces that govern nature and seeks a comprehensive balance of soil, trees, animals and humanity.

PRODUCER PROFILE:

Castillo de Canena

Located in the Guadalquivir Valley in the region of Jaen in the heart of Andalusia, Castillo de Canena is a distinct and unique family business involved in the complete process in creating extra virgin oils, from the trees and the land to its commercialization. Author and journalist, Tom Mueller, visits the Castillo de Canena Estate in his acclaimed book, Extra Virginity, and highlights the careful practices of the company. During the harvest, the olives are selected by hand at the perfect time, from specially selected trees before being carefully transferred to their mill. The olive trees are gently watered by 8 kilometers of the river Guadiana Menor, giving their oils a sweeter and less peppery taste and guaranteeing each year‰Ûªs harvest will be full of aroma and taste. Castillo de Canena takes great care of their olives and their land with a ‰''natural and environmentally respectful and integrated system‰'' and is certified on a monthly basis by official inspectors. The company received the highest score of 98 points in the 2015 Flos Olei Guidebook and is consistently featured in the ‰''Top 20‰'' extra virgin olive oils year after year.
