Oro Bailen Organic Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Oro Bailen organic Picual is the flagship premium extra virgin olive oil (new 2022/2023 harvest) of Oro Bailen, one of the world's most awarded olive oil producers, (99 points score in Flos Olei, the international olive oil guide for 2022) based in Jaen, Andalusia and run by José Galvez, after taking over the family business. This ultra-low acidity (less than 0.25%) single estate premium extra virgin olive oil is typically produced in October during the first 2 weeks of harvest. It is cold-extracted within 2 hours and filtered to preserve its taste and quality throughout its shelf life.
It has an elegant and complex taste with herbal and fruity aromas and a spicy finish. We recommend it for carpaccio, caprese salad, tomatoes, rocket salad.
The Oro Bailen organic picual olive oil receives a Great Taste Award in 2023 from the Guild of Fine Foods. Here are some of the judges thoughts about it:
"Notably fresh and characterful. A big mouthful of flavour, with a long grassy, peppery aftertaste. Its nutty notes transform into the perfect degree of bitterness. The judges loved this oil and could see it working across numerous recipes and as a final finishing flourish for both cold and hot dishes....Light and fresh on the nose. The grassy notes on the palate are very pleasing and there is a subtle bitterness in the after taste. A good, mild, easy to use Olive Oil."
