Olive Oil Concept

Monovarietal olive oil of green olive with sensations of bitter and spicy, characteristic of Cordovil, variety very representative of the zone of Moura.

The production system is Integrated Production, which is based on more environmentally sustainable cultural practices and the use of fauna to help control olive tree pests and diseases.

Cordovil

Production

The olives of the Cordovil variety are transported and received in the Esporão winery, in Reguengos de Monsaraz, a few hours after the harvest and are immediately processed.

The extraction begins with the rapid milling of the fruits. After the milling the resulting paste is subjected to a thermal shock and a rapid passage through the active exchanger, which system shortens the extraction time, and preserves the characteristic aromas of this variety that characterize this oil. The paste goes to the decanter where the olive oil is separated from the olive pomace and the water resulting in an oil still with some moisture and impurities.

The oil is cleaned by centrifugation and is immediately filtered and then packed.

Cold extraction, never surpassing the 24ºC.
