Our EVOO comes from picual variety, the better-known Jaen olive variety. This EVOO is harvested during the second half of October. The olives groves are located in the Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas Natural Park and they are in complete equilibrium with the mountains, merging with it, and offering excellent juices of strong personality.
TASTING NOTES: An organic picual whose nose exhibits a robust green fruitiness, with a hint of green grass followed by the aroma of green bananas, citrus fruit, apple and sweet almonds. In the mouth, this EVOO is very fruity. It delivers great complexity at the retronasal phase. A very complex and very harmonious EVOO, overall.
The history of the SCA San Vicente (Mogón – Jaén) begins in 1966, when a hundred small farmers in the area, pioneers in cooperative work, decided to join together to mill olives. The farms of its more than 1,300 agricultural partners, mostly located in the surroundings of the Sierra de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas Natural Park -a Biosphere Reserve- between the Guadalquivir and Aguascebas rivers, are mountain plots with steep slopes, difficult to cultivate and not suited to mechanization. An environment with unique climatic and soil conditions that give its EVOO special organoleptic characteristics.
For some years, the Governing Council of the cooperative has made a strong commitment to the search for excellence in the production of extra virgin olive oil. Therefore, in order to strengthen its commitment to quality differentiation of its product, the company has an extensive range of extra virgins, composed of five single-varietals: Early Hasrvest Picual, Organic Picual, Arbequina, Frantoio y Royal, the latter variety indigenous to the area and its blend of Picual and Arbequina.
