Olive Oil CASAS DE HUALDO Picual 500ml
Olive oil comes from different cultivars in different varieties produced by different companies. Extra virgin olive oil is the purest and of highest quality olive oil despite the cultivar from which it is extracted. At present, the market is full of olive oil producers which are selling EVOO and other graded olive oils, but the difference lies in the variety, soil where the trees are grown and the organoleptic properties the product holds.
So, here I am introducing a company which is not only famous for its landscape and the natural privileges it holds, but is also very famous for its exclusive olive oil range that holds fine, and versatile arganoleptic properties.
Casas De Hualdo, a one of its name. It is located in an ancient city Toledo, situated on a hill through which river Tagus passes by above the Castilla-La-Mancha plains in central Spain. The beautiful landscape and the coexistence of natural wild fauna and flora adds much value to our olive groves. We not only focus on the production of our crops, but also find it our responsibility to take care of our mother nature, thus sustainability is also our utmost priority.
Olive Oil Picual 500ml is from our best product range. It is pure extra virgin olive oil produced by the cold press method. Let’s have a look at the main features of this product!
Tasting note of Casas de Hualdo - Picual olive oil
Aromas of green leaf, tomato, green banana and even licorice are appreciated.
In the mouth it is robust, persistent and intense.
Casas De Hualdo Picual is an early harvest product. It is obtained at the earliest ripening stage and within 6 hours of harvesting it is set for processing. Our mill is located at the base of our farms so there is minimum to no delay in fruit processing and oil extraction. This care is taken because if the harvested fruit is slightly bruised and is delayed for processing, then it began to deteriorate and this abruptly affects the quality of the end product.
Picual, after Arbequina, is the most widespread olive variety in the world. Its origin is basically Andalusia, but its intense density feature has perfectly adapted to our land’s climatic and soil conditions.
Olive Oil picual is an intense oil, special by its high persistence and comes with great complexity. The olives which are selected for oil extraction at the perfect stage of ripeness produces a fresh green-yellow juice. When the bottle is opened a profound and complex aroma deluges out, and when it is tasted, a robust—intense flavor rushes into the mouth that activates all the taste buds.
