CULTIVAR: Monocultivar. 100% Picual.
NOTES: Picual are oil rich olives that are typical of Jaén in Andalusia. The cooler climate here near Toledo lends it finesse and complexity. Intense green grass and tomato leaf in the nose. Picual has a medium body, smooth texture with a medium body and pronounced finish with a peppery kick. “Exuberant” with “great personality”.
PAIRINGS: In gazpacho in any of its permutations, for all manner of tapas, patatas bravas and gambas al pil pil, shrimp in garlic.
