This oil is from the early harvest of the Hojiblanca varietal, which is collected mid-October when the olives acquire a yellow tinge which indicates the onset of the veraison, when their colour changes from green to black. At this stage of maturity, only a very small amount of oil is extracted. However, its sensory attributes and chemical qualities are tremendous. In this way, we produce an oil with a great aromatic complexity and a very high nutritional value due to its high content in natural antioxidants, which are responsible for its bitter and peppery finish. The yield of the fruit is very low but we are able to achieve the excellence which differentiates our extra virgin olive oil from the rest.
This is our philosophy: Legado, as its name suggests (Legacy in English), is the maximum expression of how we live for the olive groves, striving to produce the best oil as we have done for generations.
Tasting notes for Legado extra virgin olive oil · 2016/2017
Fruity intensity of green olives with great aromatic complexity in which the herbaceous and floral tones stand out. The tomato leaf, the almond blossom and the geranium leaves are noticeably strong. It is very sweet on the palate, slightly bitter and a touch more spicy with a green almond aftertaste. Persistent, rounded and harmonious.
