Olive Oil from Mallorca
Where sheeps and donkeys say hello
The silence in the Tramuntana mountains is only interrupted by the jingling of the bells of the sheeps and goats as well as by the "iiaaa" of the donkeys.
The animals living in that region are part of the natural fertilization of all the olive trees growing at the feet of the mountains.
The stony small terraces are harvested manually or by special agricultural tractors. In the oil mill the small green olives are pressed by stony or steelen mills to a well-smelling olive pasta. Staying quietly in stony bassins the oil separates naturally from the water and is filled into the big tanks once it was filtered.
There is only one unfiltered olive oil in November, called Oli Novell, the new oil. It has an intense and very fruity taste, because, as it is unfiltered, all the sediments determine the very special taste.
Here the oil rests for about 3 month, until all the solids have been sedimented. Then the oil will be green-golden and transparent and ready to be filled into the bottles.
No scandal around "Oli"!
