PRODUCER: MARQUES DE VALDUEZA
ORIGIN: EXTREMADURA, SPAIN
From the same producer as our Marques de Valdueza oil, the olives for Merula are from the second harvest of the year. The added time on the trees gives this oil its characteristic flavor and a higher smoke point. The name Merula comes from the Latin word for yellow-beaked black bird, a bird that populates the Alvarez de Toledo family estate.
Olive Varietal: Morisca, Arbequina, Picual, and Hojiblanca
Oleic Acidity: 0.19%
This oil is characterized by a buttery feel that fills the mouth, as well as distinctive notes of green olives, cut grass, green almond and dried fruit.
A perfect oil for cooking or for finishing vegetable, meat, and even desserts.
