Product “La Mancha” lands
With the cataloging of Range Selection, we brought directly to the table the juice extracted from the green olives in its early harvest.
This types of olives are the most difficult to collect because of their sensitivity and delicacy. While they are collected, the rest of the fruits of the olive follow their natural maturation process. In this way, only a selected part of the harvest will be destined to elaborate our premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Although, the young olive contains a pulp much tauter than the ripe one and, for that reason, of its extraction a smaller quantity of juice is obtained. Therefore, to make a liter of Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the highest quality, an average of two kilos more of young olives is needed than in the EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) obtained from ripe olives.
These factors convert premium extra virgin olive oil into a food of high quality and limited production, being the product most valued by our customers and consumers.
The EVOO of Puerto la Fuente stands out for the balance between three of its most important properties: the smell of wild plants, the fruity and bitter taste and the natural texture.
Without losing any of the unique and exclusive properties of this olive juice in terms of taste and texture, we also obtained a liquid gold with enormous visual appeal.
The packaging is also important. Aware of this, we have taken care of the aesthetics in detail, presenting to the market a bottle of unique and special design, where the essence of the region is collected through one of the most popular legends of our locality, Granatula de Calatrava: the legend of the hidden one that in Spanish means “La leyenda de La Escondida”.
A story that has been transmitted, as the making of our EVOO, from generation to generation. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the highest quality becomes the treasure guarded by the protagonist of the legend, of the hidden girl with hair of the color of the Sun similar to that of our product.
