Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil has four main characteristics:
- An intense yellow colour with some green touches.
- A sweet and flat taste, without the characteristic spiciness and bitterness of Southern oils. This results in a very pleasant taste on the palate which makes the tasting of these Virgin olive oils 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.
The Sierra de Gata region is well known for its olives, mainly allocated to direct consumption. These are table olives, known throughout Spain as "manzanilla cacereña". They are very similar in texture and flavour, leaving a pleasant aroma on the palate. Part of that aroma can be appreciated in our EVOO, as we use the smaller ones that cannot be allocated to direct consumption. That is why La Chinata Extra Virgin Olive Oil inherits their virtues and best known characteristics.
