Arbequina and Picual olive trees, two of the most suitable varieties for the production of unconventional oils, join together in the fruity coupage of this extra quality virgin olive oil. Its green colour, bright and intense, as well as its acidity and spice do not allow us to forget the rule of the fruit of the olive tree.
Our Balsamic vinegar is prepared using the ancestral method of wine with the Pedro Ximenez variety and must concentrate oxidation. This young vinegar is matured in American oak barrels for 8 years.
The result is an excellent vinegar ideal for salads, readymade meat dishes, fish and reaches its excellence with the preparation of sauces thanks to the perfect balance between the very acidity of the vinegar and the sweetness and aroma of the Balsamic vinegar.
|JAM OF RED WINE|
The Monastrell Red Wine Jam is made with our Monastrell wine, which in turn is made with grapes from our vineyards.
We use the same wine to create our young red wine and this jam.
Our jam is a handcrafted product, with very little sugar added when compared wiht other jams. In the creation process the wine is boiled at approximately 100º C and it loses all its alcohol due to evaportaion.
Serving suggestions: We recommend combining this jam with foie, paté, cane cheeses, torta del casar cheese, fried goat cheese, etc. and it is the perfect companion for all types of meats.
