For their organic Temprano Coupage the farmers of Cortijo el Puerto only harvest olives in perfect condition, and always at night to maintain low temperatures until the cold extraction of oil can occur just hours later. The green olives picked at the beginning of the harvest season create a variety of monovarietal oils, which then get carefully mixed to create a coupage with balanced flavor, color and smell. This fruity blend has flavors of freshly cut fresh green grass, wildflowers, apple, green almond, banana, vanilla, and green tomato. Moderate bitterness and pungency follow to balance the oil. The most powerful of the three coupages Cortijo el Puerto produces, this oil is excellent for vinaigrettes, cooked vegetables, fresh cheeses, mushrooms, pasta, poultry, white fish and seafood. The 2 liter bag-in-a-box packaging provides long-lasting preservation of both the flavor and health benefits of the extra virgin olive oil contained inside.
