TASTING NOTES

Our Portuguese Arbequina has a creamy mouth feel and displays floral characteristics along with a green almond center and a sweet, malty finish. Lingering pepper and low bitterness. 

Our partner producer (SAOV) in Portugal is using a high vacuum during malaxation to remove all of the oxygen in this processing stage where the oil spends the most time and is most prone to oxidation. This cutting edge and very technical method preserves the phenolic content, the overall chemistry plus the flavour characteristics while reducing other oxidation markers.
