La Chinata Extra Virgin Olive Oil is obtained from a selection of olives harvested in the region of Sierra de Gata, in the Northwest of Cáceres. In this area, we harvest only those fruits that have the properties we think are fundamental to obtain an Extra Virgin of very high quality. Olives must be at their optimum ripeness stage, clean, healthy and without external 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.
- Avery dense ripe fruit aroma.
- Areally 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.
Oil is obtained from the smaller olives that cannot be allocated to direct consumption; consequently La Chinata Extra Virgin Olive Oil inherits their virtues and best-known characteristics.
