This sublime, organic mountain extra virgin olive oil is a blend of rare heirloom varieties known to exist only on the Belvís de las Navas estate overlooking Gibraltar and the coasts of Africa, in which only a limited number of cases are produced each year. The 18-hectare estate rests among tall cliffs, steep slopes and narrow, difficult to access terraces that sheltered the olive varieties allowing them to survive unnoticed for decades in a unique microclimate in what is known as the tail of the Subbaetic system. Today the discovery of this ancient plantation has unleashed the opportunity to create a one-of-a kind blend that includes wild organic olive strains which contribute exceptional aromatic complexity to this freshly squeezed olive juice. The grove is managed with traditional non-irrigation methods and strict organic guidelines, which reaffirms the respect to the environment. The olives are collected early in the season and crushed the same day of harvest at low temperatures to preserve the organoleptic and physiochemical properties. The oil is truly unique in flavor and perfectly balanced with aromas of freshly cut grass, ripe tomatoes, artichoke and a hint of almond with a spicy note in the end.
