Arbequina Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil November 2023 Harvest 500 ml   

Tasting Notes:

Aroma:

Attractive and complex aroma of pears and sweet stone fruits with culinary herbs,
light nuts and lemon citrus tones.

Taste:

Similar flavours remain in the mouth with some meadowsweet hay and dried herbs.
Gentle bitterness gives way to a burst of quite fiery pepper which softens and lingers into a pleasant after taste of sweet fruits and light caramel fudge.

Style:

This is a delicate to medium style of oil with some well-balanced pepper and very little
bitterness.

Assessment:

This pleasing all-round oil should appeal to all but those who prefer a very robust oil. It
offers a versatile cooking and flavouring ingredient in the kitchen and at the table. Use in
baking and desserts as well as in savoury dishes.

The idea for producing olive oil came to Mark, aka The Gay Farmer, at the beginning of 2008 after his first olive harvest on his mother’s small-holding in Moratalla, north west Murcia in Spain. He now works with his mother's farm and a nearby organic olive mill, who have their own 1500-acre estate, to produce high-quality cold-pressed olive oil and import it to the UK.
