A genuine expression of the terroir
Aroma > Complex green aromas of aromatic hedgerows, cut grass, culinary herbs and apples. There are also hints of fresh lemon, tomato and nuts.
Taste > Equally complex tones in the mouth with fresh nuts and hedge clippings followed by tobacco leaves, watercress and bitter almond skins. The fresh nuts and herbs join with dried fruits to carry on through the mounting bitterness and pepper to maintain a harmonious flavour. The lingering after taste takes in more dried fruits and herbs ending with a touch of malted nuts and milk chocolate.
Style > This is a medium to strong oil which is very well balanced. The bitterness and pepper are never over aggressive.
Overall Assessment > This is a very good oil which stands comparison with similar styles of oil from anywhere else in the world. It could certainly hold its own as a mono-varietal oil. This is an oil suitable for many culinary combinations and for dipping.
