The 2023 Harvest
The 2023 growing season was in stark contract to the prior year, with record rainfall throughout the Winter and an unseasonably cool Spring period. Flower bloom was about a month behind prior years, yet mother nature did her thing and the fruit matured right on schedule. Harvest conditions were ideal, with mild day temperatures and cold evenings. The olives were processed in Mori Tem 2-phase mill, and filtered for an exceptionally clean extra-virgin olive oil.
This year's oil begins with a fresh, fruity aroma with notes of sweet almonds, artichoke and fresh cut grass, followed by floral green grassiness and finishing with a pleasant peppery kick. Our EVOO is classified as medium robust, and the polyphenol count is high, making this a heart-healthy oil packed with loads of antioxidants.
