Zejd in a drop
・ Mono-varietal selection to allow you an in-depth exploration of the Baino terroir. The olives belong to one of the world’s oldest cultivars, the Souri.
・ Selected from non irrigated trees.
・ Time of picking : the olives were harvested at the onset of veraison - as the olives start changing colours from green to reddish - to ensure an optimal level of polyphenol content as well as rich organoleptic characteristics.
・ Less than 10 hours delay between harvesting and extraction. (Worldwide average for EVOO is usually 24-48 hours).
・ Extraction at low temperature with minimum malaxation time.
・ Natural sedimentaion: racked and then lightly filtered. Light filtration keeps the aromas, nutrients and antioxidants while ridding the oil from any constituents that could lead to spoilage.
