Portuguese Lentrisca (Robust)

$12.00

Crush Date: November 2022

Tasting Notes:

Logging total phenol content of 709ppm, this antioxidant powerhouse is loaded with a whopping 189ppm of healthful Oleocanthal which lends this oil its powerful pepperiness. It is unique and complex with tropical fruit characteristics, a sweet berry and cream center and fiery Szechuan peppercorn finish/lingering spicy mouth feel.

Our partner producer 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.

Exactly as described by Olive Basket staff

A full flavored and fruity olive oil, it's a bit peppery, but not heavily so. Far superior to even top shelf grocery store products, but not markedly more expensive.

Superb!!

I just received the Lentrisca extra virgin olive oil. It is incredible. It has the full fruity aroma and boldly robust highly fresh flavor which only the best oils achieve. It is a fabulously peppery and delicious oil of obviously superior quality. I love it!
