Cortijo de la Cruz
Aceite de Oliva Virgen Extra
In Cortijo de la Cruz we are heirs of more than 100 years of family tradition, in the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Fruit of work and experience, and thinking of the most demanding consumers of the XXI century, we decided to bottle a selection of our best olives Picudas and Hojiblancas, in an 80/20 proportion, to create an Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic Gourmet , an exceptional product.
It is produced during the month of October, exclusively by hand and in limited quantity.
Its aroma is intense fruity green olives, of great complexity and harmony, with fruity notes of apple and banana, highlighting the green almond for its intensity, as well as the freshly cut grass. Its entry into the mouth is very sweet, characteristic of the variety peaked, appreciating in the previous part the almond and the herbaceous notes of green wheat. When you pass to the back you can see the green banana and the artichoke, the bitterness is almost imperceptible and with a very light final itch that brings us the Hojiblanca olive, along with the balance, harmony and elegance of its aroma.
