La Chinata Virgin Olive Oil is the juice from the best olives harvested in Sierra de Gata region, in the Northwest of the province of Cáceres. Only the olives we consider are fundamental to obtain a high quality Virgin Olive Oil are harvested. Olives must be at their optimum ripeness stage, clean, healthy and with no visible flaws.
Only through this selection system, we can guarantee to our customers a Virgin Olive Oil whose quality is assured.
Our Virgin Olive Oil has four main characteristics:
- An intense yellow colour 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 popularity throughout Spain (the famous "Manzanilla Cacereña" olives). They are highly appreciated for their texture and flavour, which make them very palatable.
Oil is obtained from small olives that cannot be allocated to direct concumption, so that we can say that Virgin Olive Oil obtained from these products keeps all their virtues.
