Panel test/organoleptic analysis:
Colour/aspect: Intense gold colour, with green hues. Filtered
Aroma/bouquet: Medium/soft fruity, fresh aroma of almonds and other fruits medium ripe, very harmonic and balanced.
Flavour/taste: Soft and pleasant enter, absence of bitterness, spiciness and piquant sensation but more present. It lets a vegetal sensation on the palate, persistent and nice back taste.
Recommendations of use: Desserts, orange slices with honey and olive oil, sauces, fish and seafood. Try it always in low temperature to keep its properties. Better for cold use as it’s a variety quite soft and fruity, and it doesn’t resist the high temperatures as well as other types. Despite being a rather unstable variety, our Arbequina has polyphenol levels between 350-450mg / kg which makes it much more stable in preservation and more potent than usual in flavor.
