Algarve Olive Oil Picual (250ml)

Article code P-6976
Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Algarve region in the South of Portugal, sourced by Jurgen Lehl in Japan. A perfect blend of piquant, bitter, and fruity flavours; we love it with grilled vegetables.

Ripe olives are hand-picked and ground with a millstone to extract the oil. Using this traditional Roman-era practice, the flavour of the olives is well preserved. After the harvest, the trees are carefully trimmed and treated with organic compost for the next year.

The oil is not labeled as organic as it has not received the special certification necessary—however, the entire process from harvesting to bottling has been conducted on the plantation and has been scrupulously managed to ensure that no chemicals have been used and quality has been maintained.
