LENTRISCA - ROBUST (Portugal) - NEW!

Country of Origin: Portugal

Intensity: Robust

Crush Date: November 2022

Antioxidants (Biophenols): 709.2 ppm

Logging a total phenol content of 709ppm, this antioxidant powerhouse is loaded with a whopping 189ppm of healthy Oleocanthal which lends this oil it intense pepperiness. It is complex with tropical fruit characteristics, a sweet berry and cream centre and a fiery Szechuan peppercorn finish with a lingering spicy mouthfeel. 

Our partner producer (SAOV) in Portugal is using a cutting edge vacuum process during *malaxation to prevent any likelihood of oxidation and to preserve phenolic (antioxidant) content, overall chemistry and flavour characteristics. 

*Malaxing is an extremely important phase in olive oil extraction in which the olive paste is subjected to a slow, continuous kneading to disperse the emulsions formed during the crushing process and to facilitate adequate coalescence.
