Robust Intensity

This beautiful example of Galega is astringent and peppery with savory vegetal notes of spicy arugula, hints of sweet berry and fresh wheat grass. Consistently an award winner! Low bitterness

Our partner producer (SAOV) in Portugal is using a high vacuum during malaxation to remove all of the oxygen in this processing stage where the oil spends the most time and is most prone to oxidation. This cutting edge and very technical method preserves the phenolic content, the overall chemistry plus the flavor characteristics while reducing other oxidation markers.

Chemistry at the time of harvest, OCT 2023: Bi-Polyphenols 578, Oleic Acid 72, FFA .12, Peroxide 2.27, DAGS 97.3  IOO355
