This beautifully balanced Spanish Picual has prominent notes of tomato leaf and stone fruit with a creamy center, lingering pepper and an astringent finsih. Visually stunning and complex in flavor.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Established in 1780, the Melgarejo Estate has been producing olive oil for centuries. The estate hails from the "Sea of Olives" in Jaén, Spain, where the dry Mediterranean climate provides favorable conditions for growing olives—long, hot summers and mild winters. Both in Spain and abroad, the Melgarejo Estate is regarded as a pillar of exceptional quality. With the kind of expertise that only comes with time, they have nearly elevated olive cultivation to an art form. And indeed, though four generations have gone before, the Melgarejo passion for olives is still very much alive and well.
