The 2007 harvest has been a particularly good one with respect to the quality of the olives. The relative cold climate of the 2007/2008 winter helped prevent from any olive tree disease. The absence of strong frosts, along with excellent picking conditions resulted in a high quality olive oil.
The olives have ripened relatively late - mid december - due to the cold winter, resulting in a delicate balanced olive oil combining bitter, fruity and pungent (3 - 6 - 3).
The process of picking up the fruits for Monaliva takes place very early in the harvest process and happens mainly within the first two weeks of December. The result is a very fruity olive oil with and a delicate balance between bitter and pungeant.
The olives are hand-picked in order to ensure the fruits are not harmed nor oxydated before performing the extraction of the olive oil.
Cold extraction : 50.000 liters
