Aubocassa, Mallorca DOP, Single Estate Extra-Virgin Olive Oil - 500ml
Aubocassa, Mallorca D.O.P. - this single estate Spanish extra-virgin olive oil is made from cold pressed 100% Arbequina olives from the famous Riojan winemakers Bodegas Roda's family estate in Manacor, Mallorca. Aubocassa has aromas of fresh green leaves with sweet and nutty flavours and an almost complete absence of bitterness.
Integrated farming means that minimal chemicals are used. Low yields and technological investment mean this is an expensive but very high quality oil. It is delicate, sweet, smooth and elegant, with attractive aromas of fresh green salad leaves and freshly cut grass with light citric notes, lemon peel, tomato and green almond. A fruity fresh flavour with no bitterness and slighty peppery, green almond after-taste.
Aubocassa’s estate (Albocàsser) is located on the Balearic island of Mallorca, in the municipality of Manacor, to the east of the island. The estate dates back to the 12th century and it bears witness to the different crops that have been grown on the island over history, shaping the landscape of Mallorca. The wild olive trees are a clear reminder of how the area’s past is tied to olive oil; the cellar speaks of its glorious wine growing years; the pens and enclosed shady pastures remind us that livestock has also been a form of agriculture here; the old rainwater catchment cisterns point to the value placed on resources in the Mediterranean; and the almond, fig and carob trees are the hallmark of agriculture in the 19th and 20th centuries. The limey soils are arranged in thin horizontal layers interspersed with deposits of fertile clay. Tree roots use the fissures to bypass the layers as they explore the different strata.
A multi-award winning oil. Acidity 0.1
