Crush Date: Nov/Dec 2017

Like many Spanish olive oils, the Picual has a medium body, smooth texture, and sweet, buttery taste. It is an excellent choice for use as an everyday olive oil. As an all-purpose oil, the Picual works beautifully in sauces and salads and is a delicious counterpart to the more flavorful balsamic vinegars.

For an appetizer, sprinkle it with assorted grated cheeses and spices and use it as a dipper for your favorite crusty bread. When warmed, the Picual gives off the sweet aroma of ripe tomatoes. Picual is one of the most stable olive oils in the world due to a very high polyphenol count and it also stands up well to high heat during cooking. 

The Olive Groove's extra virgin olive oils are some of the finest in the world, required to meet our strict chemistry and organoleptic standards, our quality is impeccable.

Polyphenols have been shown to function as both antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory nutrients in the body. The very number and variety of polyphenols in olive oil helps explain the unique health benefits of this culinary oil.
