Four amazing olive oils from Spain's Oro del Desierto - three monovarietals and their signature blend, the Coupage.
ARBEQUINA: Pressed from 100% organic Arbequina olives, this oil is a light fruity oil with a light golden-yellow color. It’s known for its complex vegetal aroma with hints of ripe tropical fruits, banana, parsley and basil. Its taste is fine and strong with flavors of celery, lettuce and pine nut.
HOJIBLANCA: Pressed from 100% organic Hojiblanca olives, this oil is a medium-intense fruity oil and golden-green in color. Its aroma is strong with elegant fruity notes of ripe tomato, banana and almond. Its taste is robust and spicy with notes of black pepper, sage, mint and basil. Complimentary bitterness and pungency are well-balanced.
LECHIN: pressed from 100% Lechin variety olives, is a medium-light fruity oil with an intense golden color. Lechin is known for its complex aroma of green olives and dried fruits with hints of apricot with a well-balanced flavor of ripe fruits, such as apple, with a delicate spicy finish. This is an excellent oil particularly for salted fish, anchovies, tomato salads, white meats, poultry and desserts.
COUPAGE: 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.
