Family Reserve - Escribano Estate
We are proud to launch our customer’s favorite early harvest, green fruit, fresh extra virgin olive oil: Family Reserve Picual. This oil was made at our family’s mill in Linares, Spain during the first two days of harvest this October by crushing under-ripe green olives early in the morning and then again at night to maintain a low olive fruit temperature.
In Spain, UC Davis Professor and Seasons in-house expert, Dr. Paul Vossen, helped make this oil with Soraya’s brother, Andres, creating a fabulous and unique, high-quality expression of Picual extra virgin olive oil. Dr. Vossen is one of the world’s highest-regarded olive agronomists and olive oil tasters.
A beautiful medium intensity, balanced Picual with highly fruity aromas of green almond, fresh fig, tomato plant, banana peel, and nettle. This mostly fruity and pungent, less bitter oil is alive with green herbaceous notes, mint, black pepper and sweet sensations of green apple. Absolutely world-class and spectacular.
The quality parameters are equally impressive: less than .14% acidity and 351 polyphenols. The DAGs, or freshness indicator, register at 98.7% out of 100 and Oleic at 79%.
