Origin: Cordoba

Olive variety: hojiblanca

Intensity: medium to high.

An elegant oil of medium-high fruitiness presenting primary green notes, notably olive leaf and vegetables such as tomato vine, artichoke, and green pepper, along with subtly camphorous secondary aromas of aromatic herbs as well as hints of citrus.

On the palate, it is at first sweet and almondy, immediately followed by the reappearance of the green notes. It is full-bodied, with medium-low bitterness and a lingering, spicy finish. Also making themselves present in the aftertaste are green almonds and olive leaf.

Most definitely an extra virgin olive oil with character.
