Product Description

Alfar La Maja. Surprising for its vivacity, extra virgin olive oil intense and with body. Yellowish green colour, it reminds fresh and green fruits, clean aroma in which it’s possible to appreciate notes of tomatoes and tomato plants, artichoke, grass, apple, banana and wild fruits. It has a bitter almond taste, slightly spicy, sweet and smooth at the end. For this oil, at the end of October beginning of November, we collect the olives of Arbequina variety when they begin to change their colour. In less than 12 hours from the collection they are cold pressed obtaining less fat values but a huge intensity of aroma.

How to taste an olive oil

How to taste an olive oil

  1. Keep the glass covered until the oil reaches the same temperature of the hand, take then the glass and keep it in the palm of your hand.
  2. Taking slow and deep breath. By doing so, you will be able to smell the oil distinguishing the glass and detecting the product positive or negative attributes and quantifying its intensity.
  3. To carry out the tasting of the flavour take a little sip of oil so that the tastes can be deeply appreciated. The four main tastes are sweet, salty, acid and bitter. It’ s important to spread and move the oil around the mouth.
  4. Very slowly, focusing the attention in bitter and spicy notes, the oil needs to be enough extended in the back part of the tongue, until the palate and the throat.
  5. Taking short and fast breath, introducing air from the mouth and helping the oil to extend around the mouth so that it will be possible to perceive the volatile aromatic components with retro-olfactory.
  6. It has to be taken in to account the tactile sensation when they are detected, like the pastiness, fluidity, stinging or spiciness taking notes of their intensity.
  7. Leave at least 15 minutes between one tasting and the next one. We will be able to eliminate the rests of the previous oil by chewing pieces of apple. Rinse the mouth with water.

aceite virgen extra para desayuno y ensaladas

Hola, He decidido comprar a través de ustedes por recomendación de mi madre (esperanza Larrinaga) ya que ella compraba aceite que me regalaba. He probado el omeya sin filtrar el omeya filtrado que aún tengo, y que utilizó para todo y este que utilizaré como aceite osa desayuno y ensaladas, ya que el sabor es exquisito. Una crítica al gasto de envío, que me parece caro para pedir un litro. Y no puedo comprar más porque temo que se me ponga malo. Si me pueden aconsejar sobre el tiempo de caducidad se lo agradecería Un saludo

Muchas gracias y hasta pronto
