Palacio de los Olivos olive oil is 100% natural oil of the Picual variety, genuine flavor. This EVOO is made and packaged in our oil mill, in Almagro, Ciudad Real, in our olive grove of volcanic origin.
To offer the highest quality and freshness, we only bottle EVOO from the last campaign, stored in the cellar throughout the year. Therefore, to guarantee maximum freshness, we bottle on request.
Palacio de los Olivos
Once the oil is produced, it is tasted by expert tasters, since it is essential to know its nuances. In addition, to confirm these nuances and determine their exact composition, a more extensive analysis is carried out by an external official laboratory. In particular, determining the chemical and sensory parameters, classifying its category and its levels of fruity, bitter and spicy.
On the other hand, a single taster could be wrong and / or offer subjective judgment. Therefore, the official tasting is carried out by between 8 and 12 tasters, the Tasting Panel, to objectify the final evaluation.
On the nose, Palacio de los Olivos has a high intensity of green fruity, predominantly fresh herbaceous aromas and aromatic herbs. We also distinguish touches of green fruit trees, banana skin, kiwi and green apple. These attributes are undoubtedly characteristic of an oil extracted from healthy olives, harvested when they are still green (Early Harvest).
In the mouth, the green aromas are combined with taste sensations of fresh green pepper, green tomato and bitter almond. In addition, the positive attributes of bitter and spicy, are moderate and balanced, of pleasant intensity, and light astringent final notes. This is due to its high content of natural antioxidants.
Finally, by applying the same agricultural techniques, we manage to maintain the high quality and the homogeneous organoleptic profile every year.
