Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: May 2021

Country / Region: Chile

Intensity: Mild - Medium

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 is a well-balanced Arbequina that displays a creamy green almond center with notes of stone fruit and herby tomato leaf on the nose and finish. On the palate, there is lingering pepper and minimal bitterness. A versatile and popular olive oil variety every season!
