Hojiblanca extra virgin olive oil from the Estepa region of Andalusia.

  • Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Hojiblanca

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Intensity: Medium Robust

    Intensity correlates to the amount of bitterness and/or pungency experienced when consuming an extra virgin olive oil. An olive oil with little bitterness that creates little to no sensation in the back of the throat is considered mild. A very bitter olive oil that causes a slight burning or spicy sensation in the mouth and throat is robust. We rate intensity between 5 values: Mild, Medium, Medium Robust, Robust and Extreme.

  • Polyphenols (mg/kg): 431mg

    Polyphenols are antioxidant micronutrients found in plant-based foods. The phenolic concentration in olive oil depends on variables like the variety, ripeness at harvest, extraction methods, etc. Visit our Health Benefits page to learn more.

  • Acidity: 0.14%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2021

    As a fresh food product, properly stored olive oil should be consumed within 2 years from the time of harvest for best flavor. Harvest runs from October through January in Northern Hemisphere regions, and from April through July in Southern Hemisphere regions.

Description

This extra virgin olive oil is cold-extracted from 100% Hojiblanca olives grown in the Southern Andalusian region of Estepa. It has a fruity intensity, typical of the variety, and an aroma reminiscent of fresh cut grass, apple and tomato. Its flavor is moderately intense in bitter and spiciness, making it ideal for bread-dipping, sauce-making and dressing grilled fish and vegetables.
