Burst of green aromas
Palacio de Los Olivos EVOO detaches a green intense fruitiness, positive attributes of balanced bitter and pungency, and a fresh aroma and flavor of herbs and green fruits, delightful, tasty and complex.
Once the oil is produced, we taste it as expert tasters who have the knowledge, training and experience necessary to evaluate it through the senses of smell and taste.
In addition, in order to corroborate the EVOO nuances and determine its intrinsic nutritional composition, we request an extensive chemical and sensory analysis to an external, official laboratory, which classifies it in its category and provides specific data on the levels of fruitiness, bitterness and pungency.
A single taster could be wrong in his opinions and, even if not, could offer a subjective judgment, so, we ask for this official sensory analysis because it´s carried out by 8 to 12 expert tasters, who form a Tasting Panel contributing objectivity to the total evaluation.
On the nose, the two EVOO give off a high intensity of green fruitiness in which predominates the fresh herbaceous and fruity aromas characteristic of an oil extracted from healthy olives harvested at the optimum moment of ripeness: green (“Early Harvest”)
In the mouth, such green aromas are combined with fresh taste sensations with positive attributes of moderate and balanced bitterness and pungency, of pleasant intensity, and light astringent final notes, due to its high content of healthy natural antioxidant components (cellular regenerators and anti-inflammatory)
It is essential to know the nuances given off by the oil in order to use it in the right recipe and to get out the most of it and the other foods that make up each dish.
Year after year we apply the same EVOO production high standards and pay the same care and attention to our olive groves, in order to maintain the organoleptic profile homogeneous and the quality of the oil high.
