Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: 2019

Country / Region: Chile

Intensity: Robust

Description: A very popular Spanish varietal which gets its name from the village of Arbeca, in Catalonia (Lleida) Spain. It is a widespread varietal which is now doing very well in many olive growing regions in both hemispheres. The Arbequina is desired for its signature smooth fruitiness, and its fresh and mild profile. It is a delightfully fresh and versatile olive oil. One of our most popular oils!

Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This year’s “Early Harvest” of the Chilean Arbequina is a complex example of this popular varietal. It displays prominent notes of green apple, dried grass, and a pleasant lingering bitterness. A Spanish variety by origin, the Arbequina is always a popular varietal. This season’s Arbequina is very complex and is uncharacteristically bold for an Arbequina. A big olive oil with full flavour.
