An exceptional oil, fresh and fruity combining complex aromas with a bitter and spicy note
Selection Hojiblanca is the flagship extra virgin olive oil produced by Finca La Torre. Both organic and biodynamic (Demeter certified), it has won the Mario Solinas Quality Award of the International Olive Oil Council for 3 years in a row, 2014, 2015 and 2016 in its category (intense green fruitiness). It has one of the highest contents in polyphenols (main source of health benefits in olive oil) available in the market.
It combines a strong herbal scent with a complex and harmonious taste with a very pleasant spiciness. It is particularly well suited to grilled meats, vegetables, soups and hard cheese. Some chefs have also used it on red fruits and berries.
Finca la Torre is located between two national parks, the Fuente de Piedra and the Natural Park of El Torcal de Antequera on the site of an ancient roman oil mill 2000 years old in Andalusia. The olive estate is completely surrounded by fields, pine forests and flanked by two large hills. With almost 380 hectares, it includes around 33,000 trees, from four varieties, Hojiblanca, Arbequina, Cornicabra and Picudo.
The organic and biodynamic farm has been fully modernized in 1998 and again in 2014 in order to achieve quality excellence. The mill being located within the estate allows to mill the oil to be extracted within two hours of harvesting, preserving maximum freshness. It is regarded as one of the most advanced quality promoters in the Spanish olive oil sector.
