Perched on a hillside, this forgotten ancient olive grove of 3000 trees is located on the wild banks of the Guadiana River in Alentejo, Portugal. Now pampered and revived by enthusiasts, these hundred-year-old olive trees produce a monovarietal olive oil obtained from the local tradition variety Galega.
Once the small purple fruits are picked at maturity, the pitted olive pulp is immediately cold pressed at the village mill before resting for 6 months in a settling tank. Its very low vegetable yield coupled with its artisanal manufacture gives this extra virgin olive oil a flavor of the past: authentic, precious and unique. ”
Clear olive oil with a golden yellow color with delicate green reflections. The nose is complex and elegant with herbal notes and fruity notes of ripe tomato, almond and banana. Complex and fine, this olive oil is long and round on the palate and presents a perfectly balanced and sweet bitterness and spiciness.
