Description

Coming from the Southern Hemisphere, Chilean Hojiblanca olive oil is renowned for its captivating flavor profile, which encompasses a harmonious blend of fruity, herbal, and peppery notes. This exceptional olive oil exhibits a prominent fruitiness, ranging from mild to robust, with undertones of green olives and citrus. A mild to moderate bitterness, accompanied by a pleasing tangy edge, contributes depth to the oil's complexity. A characteristic peppery finish in the throat further enhances its allure, signifying its freshness and high quality. 

Subtle almond or nutty nuances add to the layers of flavor, creating a well-balanced and versatile olive oil suitable for a variety of culinary applications

Uses

Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oils are great for salads, heavier sauces, grilled meats, rustic dishes, pastas, risottos, and bruschetta as well.
