Altitude, 500 ml unfiltered olive oil from Rincón de la Subbética
The unfiltered extra virgin olive oil of Rincón de la Subbética is particularly fresh and rich, because it comes from the first day of harvest. On the first day of the olive harvest, the fruits still contain a little more bitter substances and therefore more of the healthy polyphenols. Therefore, not only the taste of the high-class organic oil is very typical and aromatic, but its health value is also higher than in oils pressed from ripe olives.
Unfiltered olive oil from Rincón de la Subbética is cloudy because it is bottled directly after pressing, without filtering. The fact that small suspended particles settle at the bottom of the bottle over time is a natural process, but it does not affect the quality of the top oil. However, it is especially important for the naturally cloudy, unfiltered olive juice to be stored in a cool (not in the refrigerator), dry and dark place. You should consume the opened bottle within a few weeks.
Altitude, premium organic olive oil from over 1000 meters above sea level
Already the name "Altitude" lets guess that at Rincón de la Subbética is not harvested at sea level. On the contrary, the olive grove in the Sierra Subbética is located in a karst mountain range. Porous and fissured rock makes olive growing difficult, as does the unusual altitude. While other olive growers drive through their olive plantation with huge harvesting machines, at Rincón de la Subbética a lot still has to be done by hand.
Only with a lot of dedication, heart and soul and elaborate working methods can the olive grove be cultivated so that an incomparable, pure oil can be produced from the fruit of the carefully tended Hojiblanca trees. Altitude, the unique organic olive oil from over 1000 meters above sea level, is therefore a particularly noble delicacy.
When you sniff your nose over the opened bottle, you can smell the wonderful fruity freshness of the olive juice. Pour a sip of the excellent oil into a wide glass so that all the aromas can unfold, you will also notice light citrus nuances. You may detect scents of herbs such as thyme or mint and detect a hint of tomato.
Take a small sip of the wonderfully fresh olive oil Virgen extra in your mouth and you will be surprised with a sweetish entry, reminiscent of almonds. It slowly spreads the typical olive oil bitterness and in the finish the pleasant spiciness lingers on the palate for some time after swallowing.
Noble organic oil with sophisticated packaging
Of course, an exceptional olive oil also needs an unusual packaging. To remind us of the rocky, stony place of origin, the Altitude bottle is in a triangularly designed cardboard box. Of earthy brown colour, the extravagant cardboard cover thereby simultaneously refers to the ecological value, because after all, the top oil is an olive oil from organic cultivation. The bottle itself remains true to the shape of the Rincón de la Subbética brand: round and slender, with a long neck. In order to perfectly show off the unique extra virgin olive oil in its attractive green colour, the manufacturer has opted for a clear, unpainted glass bottle.
To highlight the elegance and uniqueness of the premium organic olive oil, the bottle is printed in white and gold. This is because an oil that comes exclusively from the first day of harvest is not available in large quantities. Therefore, Altitude is also available only as a limited edition of Rincón de la Subbética. Exclusively packaged, made with dedication and with incomparable aromas and flavours, the premium organic olive oil Virgen extra is the icing on the cake for your own dishes or an exquisite gift.
