Castelas olive oil has its roots in the heart of Provence, on the sun-soaked footslopes of Les Alpilles. Its great finesse, its freshness, its balance, and its almond and artichoke aromas are achieved by blending four varieties of olive typical of the Vallée des Baux de Provence: Salonenque, Beruguette, Grossane and Verdale. It has a peppery, bitter edge that denotes the presence of natural polyphenols, a sign that the olives were picked at the optimal point of freshness and maturity. To protect all these traits and the preservatives that it naturally contains, Castelas olive oil is only very slightly filtered, if at all, and may contain a small amount of sediment.
Castelas olive oil is extra virgin quality, cold pressed within 24 hours of harvesting. Its extraction method showcases the green fruity character of the oil and preserves the subtle flavours of its terroir. It has an aroma of freshly cut grass and green olive fruitiness. On the palate it offers long-lasting flavours of raw artichoke and sweet almonds. It has a subtly elegant and extremely fresh character. On the finish, the oil has a slightly peppery, bitter edge, a sign that the olives were ideally ripe when picked.
The olive oil made at Castelas Mill is a genuinely gastronomic product which will brighten up your cooking. Its full appeal can be savored when it is used to dress hot dishes such as fish and steamed vegetables. It also goes beautifully with marinades, salads and goat's cheese. And with raw prepared artichokes it makes the perfect match. You can also dare to be different – try pairing it, for example, with a citrus salad.
