A sweet, soft, and delicate olive oil produced from ripe olives.
2021 was an especially rainy year that completely replenished the soil’s water reserves, which is key to cultivating these rainfed olive groves. Weather conditions led to significantly earlier ripening and the harvest took place in November and December.
Shortly after harvest, the olives are shipped to the Esporão mill in Reguengos de Monsaraz where cold extraction immediately begins at room temperatures never exceeding 27ºC (80.6ºF). The fruit is rapidly ground and run through a heat exchanger to shorten extraction time and preserve the aromas. A centrifuge mechanically separates the pomace from the oil that is promptly filtered and packaged.
