Description

Our Paleta Ibérica, or shoulder, will be aged a minimum of 18 months. Bellota (acorn) means the pigs have been on the plains eating acorns for the last 3 or 4 months of their lives and when they reach the desired weight for slaughter have not eaten any other grains. Our producer in El Valle de Los Padroches in Córdoba has 400,000 hectares of Holm oak forest. These oak trees produce acorns considered to be the sweetest in Spain. It is here they allow their 100% purebred Ibérico pigs to roam freely. During autumn and winter, the pigs feed on acorns, which contributes to the meat’s juicy flavor and marbled appearance. The meat is dried and cured for 90 days to develop its unparalleled flavor.

Tasting Note

Encina acorn adds unusual depth and sweetness not found in paletas from other regions. During autumn and winter, the pigs feed on acorns, which contributes to the meat’s juicy flavor and marbled appearance.

Food Paring

Put a thinly sliced Paleta Iberico on a piece of bread or pan con tomate. Pair it with sliced melon on a summer day. As for wine, try Sherry or Cava to have a full Mediterranean experience.
