Knolive Epicure Olive Oil
This gourmet extra virgin olive oil is obtained from the mixture of olives of the Hojiblanca and Picuda varieties. These olives are from mountain olive groves that are located within the Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park in the municipality of Priego de Córdoba, so famous for its EVOO. Likewise, these mountain olive groves are cultivated at altitude and most are over a hundred years old. Olive harvest is mechanical and especially manual, as it could not be otherwise in a mountain olive grove.
The extraction of the juice is carried out by centrifugation in two phases. And the difference with the traditional 3-phase extraction is that the two-phase extraction preserves much better the amount of natural antioxidants in olive oil. In addition to reducing water consumption and wastewater volume from the process. The juice is then stored in a heated cellar with fully insulated stainless steel tanks so that it does not lose its properties.

An explosion of fresh aromas. As regards the palate, it has a flavor of tomato, freshly cut grass and fresh almond, with a finish of bitter notes and a pleasant spicy of white pepper.
