This Manzanilla Extra Virgin Olive Oil exudes buttery ripe and green floral aromas. It is very fruity which is nicely balanced with medium bitterness and strong pungency. The ripe apple, banana, tropical, and buttery flavours compliment the herbaceous, grass, mint, cinnamon, and spicy black pepper characteristics. But it is the elevated polyphenol count of this EVOO that is truly of note – 750 polyphenols is truly an extraordinary level of antioxidants.
