At Cortijo de la Cruz we are heirs of more than 100 years of family tradition, in the production of Extra Virgin Olive Oils. As a result of work and experience, and thinking of the most demanding consumers of the 21st century, we decided to bottle a selection of our best Picudas and Hojiblancas olives, in an 80/20 ratio, to create a Gourmet Extra Virgin Olive Oil, an exceptional product .
The olives are harvested during the month of October, exclusively by hand and in limited quantity.
Its aroma is intense fruity of green olives, of great complexity and harmony, with fruity notes of apple and banana, highlighting the tomato bush, the green almond for its intensity, as well as the freshly cut grass. Its entry into the mouth is very sweet, characteristic of the peaked variety, appreciating the almond and herbaceous notes of green wheat on the front. When passing to the background you can see the tomato, the green banana and the artichoke, the bitterness is almost imperceptible and with a very light final itch that the Hojiblanca olive brings us, together with the balance, harmony and elegance of its aroma.
