Three olive oils from Pago Baldios San Carlos of Extremadura:
SAN CARLOS ARBEQUINA: This extra virgin olive oil is made from 100% Arbequina olives which are harvested in early October - fifteen days earlier than what is typical - thus intensifies the flavor of the oil. With its more concentrated taste, the oil is characterized by a balance between flavors of herbs, ripe fruit, almonds, apples, tomatoes and bananas. It is ideal for seasoning raw food, salads, grilled fish and desserts.
ORO SAN CARLOS: Oro San Carlos is a thoughtful blend of locally-grown Arbequina and Cornicabra olives of Extremadura. The olives are harvested in early October thus giving the oil a more concentrated fruity flavor. This well-balanced oil is medium fruity with notes of fresh herbs, apple and almond with a subtle spicy finish and adds wonderful flavor to grilled meats and vegetables. The oil was recently awarded one of the “Best Olive Oils in the World” with a Gold Medal at the 2015 New York International Olive Oil Competition.
SAN CARLOS GOURMET: Made predominantly from Cornicabra olives with a light touch of Arbequina, this extra virgin olive oil from award-winning producer, Pago Bladios San Carlos of Extremadura, is harmonious and well-balanced. This medium-intense oil has predominant aromas of green grass, artichoke and green almonds with a delightful balance of sweet and peppery flavors. Try this oil on hearty dishes such as roasted meats, potatoes, stews and barbecues.
