Vieiru Estate DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2021 Harvest

Vieiru Estate DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Coming Soon

This single-varietal extra virgin olive oil is the estate oil of Almazara As Pontis, named The Best Olive Oil Mill in Spain 2017. It is produced using 100% Manzanilla Cacereña olives, and is milled by cold extraction within a few hours of harvest.

Vieiru DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil carries a Gata-Hurdes DOP (designation of origin), which ensures that the olives must be of high stability, virgin, and of a pure, single varietal olive with no mixtures. The region of Sierra de Gata-Hurdes is located in the northwest of the Extremadura, where Manzanilla Cacereña olive trees reach their maximum quality.

Upon harvest, the olives are pressed on site using a state-of-the-art Pieralisi oil mill. The entire production is sustainable, taking place within a comprehensive, eco-friendly integration: olives from the estate's old groves; power generated by a biodigester; water purified in-house and recycled; and crushed olives used as fertilizer the groves. Almazara As Pontis has won 52 awards in the last two seasons, and in 2017 was recognized as The Best Olive Oil Mill in Spain by the Spanish Association of Olive Municipalities (AEMO)—a stunning achievement for this small, artisanal producer.

2020 Harvest Notes
This elegant extra virgin olive oil is light-to-medium-bodied with a fresh scent of grass and artichoke. It is herbaceous with a pleasant bitterness and slight pungency. This great all-purpose oil is wonderful on freshly sliced tomatoes or grilled shrimp with fleur de sel.
