2022 Late Harvest Extra-Virgin Olive Oil in Glass (500 ml)
Our Late Harvest Estate Blend is comprised of Frantoio, Maurino and Leccino varietals. It is a more mellow oil compared to our traditional October oil, which is the result of riper fruit and a natural decrease in the polyphenol count.
Ideal for any type of salad, as a finishing oil for freshly steamed vegetables - or just a drizzle over your favorite bread. Buonissimo!
Harvest Date: Nov.8-9, 2022 | Size: 500 ml
NOTE: If you live in the Winters/Davis area, we will deliver your oil and refund shipping.
The Late Harvest EVOO is an elegant, delicate and sweet oil with undertones of almond and finishing with a slight hint of pepper.
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 in November were ideal, between 65F-70F. 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.
