Arbequina & Empeltre, 25cl glass


8.4 fl oz

Catalonian Arbequina trees grow in an area called La Franja, meaning “border land”, and co-mingle with Empeltre trees native from neighbouring Aragón. The trees grow from seeds dropped by starlings, (“estornell” in Catalan), who have a tremendous appetite for good olives to the chagrin of growers.


Location:  The banks and low hills of the river Cinca near Mequinenza; Aragón, Spain
Time of Harvest:   October
Method:  First cold extraction by centrifuge
Taste:  Rather fruity because of early harvest with no bitterness, an elegant mouth feel of the many aromas of the Arbequina but with a note of sweet almonds from the Empeltre. This brings a fatty texture to the olive oil, like liquid butter. After 10 seconds one still feels the delicious peppery Arbequina aftertaste..
