Description 

Les Terroirs De Marrakech Olive Oil - 500 ml - Morocco (2013 Harvest)

With three ticks of the clock and the burn sets in and three coughs and you know you have an oil. A full feel, the tip of the tongue gets this great olive taste, almost as if you are eating the olive from which it came. I love the feel of this oil. Delightfully full of flavor, yet so clean the oil evaporates leaving a wonderful memory.

Les Terroirs de Marrakech Olive Oil is another superior olive oil from the Aqallal family. Pressed from 100% Picholine du Languedoc olives grown in century old groves originally planted by Baron Rothschild.

The Aqallal family has been producing olive oil in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco since 1887, winning more awards and press mentions than any other producer in the region along the way, including Travel + Leisure, Saveur, London’s Great Taste Gold, Los Angeles Olive Oil Competition Gold Medal. All the olive work is done on the estate, from cultivation and harvest to bottling and packaging. The olive oil has a very low acidity level of between 0.1 and 0.2 percent.

Aroma: This delicately complex aroma takes in almonds, culinary herbs with a touch of basil, lemons and sweet bananas. There is also a hint of woody hedgerows and wet grass.

Taste: More culinary herbs on the palate with sorrel, cucumber, red berry fruits and nuts. Very light bitterness but plenty of pepper which grows and then fades allowing the green herbs, nuts and sweet biscuits to return. The interesting after-taste takes in fudge and sweet bananas with just a touch of hazelnut chocolate.

Style: Very sweet and delicate style of oil with a good burst of pepper.

Overall: An attractive and gently complex oil with a really sweet finish. Use it for general cooking, but particularly for desserts and baking.
