Legado Extra Virgin Olive Oil. 2 500ml bottles plus Spana Bag
Hacienda de Colchado "Legado"
Legado, as its name suggests (Legacy in English), is the maximum expression of how the producers live for the olive groves, striving to produce the best oil for generations.
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 when their color changes from green to black. At this stage of maturity, only a very small percentage of oil is extracted. However, its aroma and flavor as well chemical qualities are tremendous. This is how the best oils are made. This is a fantastic example with a great aromatic complexity and a very high nutritional value due to its high content of natural antioxidants, which are responsible for its bitter and peppery finish.
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.
This is one of the best EVOOs we have had. Bright and powerful fresh and spicy with all the character big grassy fruitiness, a good bite at the back of the throat, characteristic of a high quality EVOO.
