The 2022 Harvest
The 2022 growing season was our warmest yet, with 40+ days of temperatures over 100F (38C). Our orchard yield was well-above normal, and the fruit matured slightly ahead of schedule, about a week earlier than previous years. Harvest conditions were dry and unseasonably warm (75F-85F). The olives were hand-picked and brought to the mill in 40lb picking crates, which helped alleviate fruit damage and kept the olives at an ideal temperature for the milling process.
This year's oil begins with a clean, fresh, fruity aroma with a touch of green almonds, followed by a green/grassy flavor, good spice and a pleasant peppery kick at the end. Our EVOO is classified as medium robust, and the polyphenol count is high, making this a heart-healthy oil packed with loads of antioxidants.
