L’Estornell is a Catalan bird that always shows up to "help" at harvest time. The "Arbequina" varietal originated in this area of the world. Located to the south of the province of Lleida and grows at an altitude of 400 meter. This varietal lives through very cold, foggy winters and extreme dry heat in summer. These factors make this oil hearty and one of the highest quality.
Vea has developed an unique cold extraction method with a very short milling time before the extraction, which helps to create an oil with lower peroxide levels and therefore a longer shelf life.
This beautifully designed bottle contains 100% Arbequina olive oil and exhibits all the traits this olive is prized for. The flavor of artichoke predominates with a sweet aftertaste and a smooth, subtle finish with no pepper. It is an excellent value. PAIRINGS: Whip into mashed potatoes, dress a watermelon and feta salad, on chick peas and lentils or to braise whole baby vegetables.
This oil is of a golden green color and it brings a fresh sensation with a mild spicy finish.
