Olive Oil from Mallorca
Were the sheeps and donkeys are saying hello
The silence in the Tramuntana mountains is only interrupted by the jingling of the bells from sheeps and goats mixed with the "iiaaa" of the donkeys.
The animals living in that region are part of the natural fertilization for all the olive trees growing at the feet of the mountains.
The stony small terases 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 after filtering will be filled into big tanks.
There is only one unfiltered olive oil in november, called Oli Novell, the new oil. It has o intense, very fruity taste, because unfiltered all the sediments are giving the very special taste.
Here the oil will be resting for about 3 month, until all the solids have been sedimented. Then the oil will be green-golden and transparent, to be filled in the bottles.
