Winning awards in 14 international contests, produced with olives collected on the first day of the harvest.Oro San Carlos is a thoughtful blend of locally-grown Arbequina and Cornicabra olives of Extremadura. The olives are harvested in early October thus giving the oil a more concentrated fruity flavor. This well-balanced oil is medium fruity with notes of fresh herbs, apple and almond with a subtle spicy finish and adds wonderful flavor to grilled meats and vegetables. The oil was recently awarded one of the “Best Olive Oils in the World” with a Gold Medal at the 2015 New York International Olive Oil Competition.Pairs Best WithLeafy Green Salads, Garden Salads, Raw Vegetables, Roasted/Grilled Veg, Grilled Fish, White Meat, Soups & Stews, Sauces, Legumes/PulsesLocated in the Valley of Tiétar in Cáceres, Extremadura, Spain, the Pago Baldios San Carlos family has been linked to agriculture since the 17th century. The unique microclimate of the valley makes it possible to harvest fifteen days earlier than usual, giving their products an outstanding fruity flavor. The olive groves, located in the foothills of Sierra de Gredos and situated amongst raspberry, orange and cherry trees, drink the crystal clear waters provided by the almost perpetual snows of Pico Almanzor Mountain and ripen under the rays of the Extremadura sun. This extraordinary location allows their oils to reach minimum levels of acidity and gives their products the unique fruity aromas. The oils and vinegars of Pago Baldios San Carlos continually garner some of the most prestigious awards in the world and are beloved by some of the best Michelin Star chefs in Spain.Recent International Awards2019 L'Orciolo d'Oro - Light Fruity International - Distinction2018 Athena IOOC - Silver2018 L'Orciolo d'Oro - Light Fruit - Honorable Mention2018 Oil China - Medium - BronzeTYPE:Extra VirginSIZE:500ml (16.9 oz)REGION:Extremadura, SpainVARIETALS:Arbequina, Cornicabra
