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 traces of green.
- A sweet and flat taste, without the characteristic spiciness and bitterness of Southern oils. We achieve a very smooth taste that makes tasting 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 in the different olive growing zones in Spain.
We have to know that in Sierra de Gata region olives are mostly allocated to direct comsumption, that is to say, they are table olives, known throughout Spain as “Manzanilla Cacereña”. They are really appreciated because of their texture and flavour, which makes them pleasant on the palate.
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.
