The Extra Virgin Olive Oil ‘La Chinata’ is the juice of olives harvested in the region of Sierra de Gata, in the northwest of the province of Cáceres. In this area, we collect only those fruits that meet the properties we consider fundamental to obtain an Extra Virgin oil of the highest quality. The olives must be at their optimum stage of ripening, as well as clean, healthy and they must present an umblemish appearance.
It is only through this selection system that we can guarantee to our customers an Extra Virgin Olive Oil on which we can truly rely in terms of quality.
Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil has four main characteristics:
- An intense yellow color with some green touches.
- A sweet and flat taste, without the burning and bitter tastes that are characteristic of the oils from southern Spain; therefore, a very pleasant taste is achieved, making its tasting a real pleasure.
- A very dense ripe fruit aroma.
- A very high fatty acids content, which makes this one of the most perfect Virgin oils of all those obtained in the different olive-growing areas of Spain.
We must take into account that, in the region of La Sierra de Gata, most olives are destined for direct consumption, that is to say, table olives, which enjoy a well-deserved popilarity throughout Spain (the famous “Manzanilla Cacereña” olives). They are highly appreciated for their texture and flavor, which make them very palatable.
The oil is obtained from olives that, due to their small size, cannot be destined for direct consumption, so it follows that the Extra Virgin obtained from these fruits maintains all of its most characteristic virtues.
