California Picual (Mild)


Tasting Notes:

This small batch California Picual was harvested from groves in Esparto California, Yolo County. Made from exceedingly green fruit, it displays bold fruity aromas despite its delicate nature as well as exemplary chemistry including the lowest possible documented FFA, a testament to the perfect condition of the fruit. The antioxidant-squalene content is also remarkably high. Notes include green banana and stone fruit.

Product ships in dark glass bottles, clear glass was used in the photo to show color.

Constantly Used

Love the California Picual (Mild). I use it several times a week. Just last night I used it in Beef Stroganoff, and the mild flavor enhanced the primary flavors of the dish, making it richer in every way.
