Criolla- Peru, May 2023 (Robust Intensity)
The Criolla olive has historical roots in Peru, believed to have been brought from Spain in 1519. The olive fruit for this oil was harvested at perfect maturity creating an extremely complex oil with a wonderful floral aroma of fresh tropical fruit. Its balance is perfect with some bitterness, significant pungency, and strong fruitiness. This oil has many ripe and green fruit flavors. It is nutty, buttery, tropical, and citrusy – along with herbal flavors of green apple, artichoke, mint, cinnamon, and black pepper. The finish is very fresh and lingering.
