Crush Date: November 2016
Flavor Intensity: Medium

This oil comes from the most dominant variety of indigenous olives in Portugal. Galega olives have a sweet delicate fruity flavor in contrast to the green rich fleshy Spanish Manzanilla olives or the dark smooth meaty taste of Greek Kalamata olives. This harvest has produced an oil that is delicately creamy and viscous with fruity notes of apple peel, strawberry and almond. The low bitterness and pungency make it ideal for baking, dipping and delicate vinaigrettes. Slightly pungent.
