Quinta do Noval Olive Oil

Post by AHB » 10:10 Thu 14 Dec 2017

I'm ordering some (new harvest) olive oil which should arrive in the UK in January. I'm ordering 48 x 50cl bottles. Cost is approximately £10 per bottle.

I'm happy to share (or happy to keep them all!). If anyone would like any, please say so here.
  • AHB - 30 bottles
  • CMAG - 12 bottles
  • PW - 6 bottles
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Assuming this is the same as discussed at the Calem tasting, then yes please to 6 for me.

It is the same. Most people asked me to reconfirm after the Calem tasting - something about not remembering too clearly after a bottle and a half of port.

Enjoyed the two bottles we bought from you a few years back (a suspicious looking exchange at Waterloo Station). A bit grassy, but that only required discretion in its application.

I agree with you about the grassy tone, but I've learnt to like the green note and find it adds to certain salads and other cooking. You need to know it's there, but once you can use it to adds a dimension that other oils lack.
