Extremadura - Spain
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.
Fruity but not too pungent, we love this oil for baking.
All of our oils are exceptional for cooking, use the good stuff.
We love this oil to sautee, taste through to the olive fruit flavors.
