How the weather marks the character of the olive oil
The agricultural year 20/21 of our EVOO had a rainfall of 387 mm, slightly below the average of the area, having in May an episode of rain that favored a high “cuaje” of flowers deriving in a high average production.
The absence of rain in summer and early autumn, caused some water stress in some plots, which made us choose other cooler and wetter areas of the farm to find a good balance between the “spicy and bitter”, getting an oil of superior characteristics with a high fruity and high content of polyphenols but keeping in balance qualities as important as the spiciness and bitterness (indicators of its high level of natural antioxidants).
As far as temperatures are concerned, the tonic continues to be the usual one in the context of global warming in which we find ourselves and which we try to mitigate with good soil management, covering it with remains of pruning and organic material that helps us to maintain the humidity of the soil for longer.
