This beautifully balanced Spanish Picual is sweet and fruit forward with notes of peach plus tomato leaf and artichoke in the center. Pleasantly astringent with desirable bitterness and lingering pepper sensation. High fruitiness scores and visually stunning. Ultra low FFA makes this a great choice for cooking. Very high squalene levels make this great for skin and over all health.
