Merula (blackbird in Spanish) extra virgin olive oil comes from the Perales estate of the Marqués de Valdueza near Mérida, Spain, where his family has been producing olive oil since 1624. The later harvest makes it soft and buttery with the aroma of cut grass, light bitterness, and moderately pungent finish. It’s made from Arbequina, Hojiblanca, Piqual, and Marisca, a rare cultivar grown only in Extremadura.
Mild and balanced this oil is great for grilling.
