Single estate, limited production Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, produced exclusively from picual olives from early harvest in “El Vicario” estates. Olive grows between 5 and 15 years, planted in 7 x 5m with drip irrigation system.

Harvest: Mid-October to early November

Production: Cold extraction 2 phases. Only with early harvested olives, 65-75% still green.

Varieties Picual 100%

Zone of production: Finca el vicario, Desierto de Tabernas (Almería) Spain

Panel test/organoleptic analysis:

Colour/aspect: Intense green colour, very clean. Filtered

Aroma/bouquet: Medium intensity, fresh grass aroma combined with notes of olive leaf and fig plant. Persistent and harmonic, green and mildly-fruity. 

Flavour/taste: Astringent with great character and personality, medium-high bitterness depending on the year, mildly piquant. Has a leafy, grassy aftertaste.

Recommended use: Salads, toasts, soups and sauces, gazpacho. It’s a premium olive oil, but Picual has a high content of oleic acid (omega 9), polyphenols and antioxidants (550-600mg/kg), so the stability against temperature and oxidation is much higher than other varieties. Can be used for cooking in medium temperatures and even frying.

Total Polyphenol Content: 450-600mg/kg.

Oro del Desierto Picual has won numerous awards in the Organic Intense Fruitiness Categories of international olive oil competitions.
