A single variety picual olive from Jaen. It has intense notes of fruited green olives, reminiscent of tomato, fig, apple, grass, and unripe almond. Emerald green in hue, it has a sweet flavour with slightly bitter edge. Very harmonious oil. This oil has over 80 different awards, including winning for three consecutive years the Spanish Ministry of Rural and Marine Environment Award.
This unique Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced on the first day of the harvest to maintain the highest level of antioxidants and polyphenols whilst having a unique taste. Each batch of Castillo de Canena first day of the harvest is evaluated by a highly qualified panel of tasters to ensure the aroma and flavour are absolutely perfect.
Enjoy this award-winning extra virgin olive oil for breakfast as Spanish people do, on salads, boiled potatoes, or vegetables.
Castillo de Canena First day of the harvest pairs really well with a tomato salad or drizzle on crusty tomato bread, known in Spain aspan tomaca, and is great with grilled fish dishes, especially tuna.
