Extra Virgin Olive Oil PICUAL
FIRST DAYS OF HARVEST
The olives used in EVOO Picual are collected when green or ripening. That is the time when both physical and chemical properties are in their optimum condition.
We are also very careful not to damage the olive, and that’s the reason why the oil is extracted in a cold environment on the day of harvesting. This gives the EVOO Picual a fresh aroma and makes it a healthy fruity oil.
In this variety we used a cold extraction method that takes place the same day of harvesting, being the olives processed within the next few houses. The acidity of EVOO Pivual is 0.09. This Olive Oil should be stored in a cool and low light environment.
