La Chinata Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the juice of olives harvested in the region of Sierra de Gata, in the Northwest of the province of Cáceres. There, only those fruits that gather the properties we think are essential to obtain a high quality EVOO are harvested. Olives must be in the optimum ripe stage, clean, healthy and with no visual flaws.
Only through this selection system, we can guarantee to our customers an Extra Virgin Olive Oil whose quality is assured.
Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil has four main characteristics:
- An intense yellow colour with traces of green.
- A sweet and flat taste, without the characteristic spiciness and bitterness of the oils from the South of Spain. We achieve a very smooth taste that makes the tasting of these virgin oils a great pleasure.
- A very dense ripe fruit aroma.
- A really high content of unsaturated fatty acids, that makes this Virgin oil one of the most perfect from the different olive growing zones in Spain.
The region of Sierra de Gata is known for its olives, mainly allocated to direct consumption. We are talking about table olives, known throughout Spain as “manzanilla cacereña”. They are very similar in texture and taste, so they leave a pleasant flavour on the palate.
Part of this aroma can be appreciated in our oil, as used olives are the smaller ones that cannot be allocated to direct consumption; consequently La Chinata Extra Virgin Olive Oil inherits their virtues and best-known characteristics.
