Herdade do Esporão Cordovil Olive Oil
Single variety olive oil made from green olives with the slightly bitter and spicy flavour typical of the Cordovil olive, the most common variety in the Alentejo.
Production: The olives are transported separately, according to variety, and received at the Esporão olive press just a few hours after being picked and are processed immediately. The extraction begins with the rapid milling of the olives. Following the milling, the resulting paste is beaten slowly to allow the oil to seep from the pulp. The paste then goes to the centrifugal extractor which removes and separates the oil. The entire process takes place at temperatures below 27 º C, so the original flavours are not lost during extraction.
Colour: Green with yellow tinges
Aroma: Fine fruity
Palate: Fresh, lightly bitter, touch spicy and green fruits.
Use and pairing: An intense olive oil that complements dishes with subtle flavours.
Storage: To preserve the olive oil's quality, keep the bottle in a cool place, away from the light and with the cap screwed tight.
