From among 90ha. of traditional olive groves, lOha. of which are super intensive, and hundreds of olive trees that are more than 100 years old, comes the Casa Anadia Private Collection. It is the result of the most sophisticated fusion between the best olives, of the best varieties, from the best olive trees that exist on the Estate. Only after careful analysis, extraction and tasting are we ready to make Casa Anadia’s noblest and most extraordinary olive oil. It’s Casa Anadia’s olive oil masterpiece. Private Collection is 100% natural and it is not filtered so that it maintains all of its original properties.
Varieties: Cobrançosa and Picual.
Harvest and extraction: During the months of October, November and December, Casa Anadia takes weekly samples from all of its groves, guaranteeing that the olives are harvested when they are at their perfect stage of maturation. The process and the week when this is done, vary from one olive grove to another, according to the different varieties and soil types. Olive harvest ing therefore takes place at the ideal moment for each variety and grove, respecting their true nature. Harvesting is done using a combination of traditional and modern methods. Some olives are hand-picked whilst others are harvested using a mechanical vibration means, without the olives ever coming into contact with the ground.
After harvesting, the olives are quickly transported to the mill, so that the extraction can begin just a few hours after they have been picked. The process that is always used is cold extraction by a two-phase decanter. From the moment the olive leaves the grove until its oil is extracted, takes an average of 3 hours, main taining all the freshness and original flavours of this freshly picked “fruit”. The different varieties are separated during harvesting and before extraction, so that they can be analyzed independently, for better batches and respective products.
Tasting Notes: Fresh olive oil, exuberant, complex, well balanced, with green olive fruitness, hints of green olive tree leaf, herbs and green banana peel. Slightly bitter and piquant. It has a reltively persistent.
