It is smooth-tasting with a great balance, very good fruit, and the aftertaste is a bit peppery. The unfiltered oil is Certified Organic by the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture. It is exceptional with lamb, beef, salad or spicy foods. I will also have Moutere Grove from New Zealand ~ 250 ml $20; 500 ml $30 and bottled Catalan 250 ml $16; 500 ml $24.
