“Our idea” says the Marqués of Valdueza, “is to grow four types of olive, and make a blend that exhibits the best qualities of each. We have morisca - brought by the moors- sweet, not peppery and not so stable, and then arbequina, a little sour, very aromatic, with a flavor that fades quickly. This we balance with hojiblanca- fruity, sweet and a little peppery. Lastly picual. What it lacks in fruit flavor, it makes up with strength and bite. Altogether we intend a balanced blend."
