OLIVE GROVE: The estate, “Cortijo El Tobazo”, is located in Alcaudete, in the province of Jaén, Andalucía, southern Spain, at an average height of 600 meters above the sea and a wide temperature range between summer and winter, which allow a natural disinfection of the olive trees, keeping them safe from plagues and illness without the use of chemical products.
OLIVE TYPE: Picual – healthiest and most stable variety, with highest oleic acid and antioxidants content. It is highly resistant to rancidness. Picual retains its quality characteristics, two or three times longer than any other variety of olives.
TASTE: On the nose, intense fruitiness of the green grass and olive leaves with touches of green fruits like olives, tomato and artichoke. On the palate, the intensity of the herbaceous sensations is balanced with the bitterness and green flavour and aftertaste that stays at the end of the tasting. It is sweet on entrance.
FOOD PAIRING: Due to its intensity a little splash of this olive oil makes the difference in your recipes. Ideal specially for dressing salads, vegetables and fish, and to spread over grilled bread.
