About Hacienda el Palo:
Acieites Hacienda el Palo is among the best olive oil producers in Jaén, the World Capital of Olive Oil. They have countless, national and international awards, and with great family history. The Martos Ávila family has been producing olives for four generations since 1941. In the early 2000s, they decided to build a modern mill on their farm, to transform their olives into a golden liquid. Today they are producing ca.54000 hectolitres of oil per year. The olives come from the Family Farm, which is 300 hectares with 30 000 trees, as well as from selected local producers. Their credo is: ‘Our dream and our know-how is above anything and is the reason for the quality of our EVOO’. What else can we say? Hacienda el Palo turns the olives into liquid gold.
We couldn’t wait to taste this oil. When it arrived the first thing we did was take out one bottle from its box and pour it into a tasting glass. In terms of aromas, the Baravoleum Novadillo Blanco is beautifully complex and harmonious. Grass, tomato, artichoke, fig, apple, and green almond are all there. At tasting, grass, tomato and apple come forward followed by pleasant notes of artichoke and almond. It comes with mild bitterness and medium spiciness. Although it is stable and perfect for cooking, we use it only raw. A great company for tapas nights with some lovely sourdough bread. This is The Bravoleum Nevadillo Blanco, classic and complex, just beautiful. Enjoy!
