2013 Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Since the 1990s, Jordan Winery has strived to craft the best, purest Extra Virgin Olive Oil that honors Tuscany and Spain right here in Sonoma County. More than 18 hillside acres of European olive tree varieties have been planted at Jordan since 1995, including Frantoio, Pendolino and Leccino from Italy and Arbequina from Spain. The Mediterranean climate of Northern California—warm, sunny days and cool, crisp nights—make Sonoma an ideal region for growing grapes, olives, and other fruits and vegetables.

“A vintage of pleasant surprises, Jordan’s 2013 bottling exhibits both youthfulness and maturity, as well as remarkable approachability. Its fragrant, grassy, artichoke notes open to enticing flavors of fresh-cut grass, crisp apples and herbs with a touch of bitterness on the peppery finish. Truly an olive oil of balance.” — Executive Chef Todd Knoll

Vintage

Mother Nature was on a roll in 2013, blessing us with glorious weather two years in a row. Jordan’s 18 acres of olive orchards achieved an ideal fruit set during spring. Expected to be a low-yielding growing season for these alternate-bearing trees, 2013 surprised us with the gift of another bountiful crop after the stunning 2012 vintage. This temperate growing season continued throughout summer and fall, allowing the fruit to steadily mature until being harvested at the peak of each variety’s flavor expression.

Making

Fruit was either handpicked in the Italian brucatura tradition or shaken into special nets. As an artisanal oil, the olives are milled within 24 hours of harvest, and the oil is never filtered or heated, allowing our Jordan Estate fruit to best express itself. Our extensive master blending session resulted in a vibrant combination of Leccino, Frantoio, Arbequina, Pendolino, Cipressino and Ascolano olives. Each bottle was hand labeled in our cellar by the Jordan culinary staff. Ready for tasting enjoyment upon release.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Jordan Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil will enhance an endless array of appetizers, salads and entrées. Use this elegant finishing oil as a base for salad dressings, brush it on fresh figs wrapped in prosciutto or drizzle over grilled fish with a squeeze of citrus. This fine tasting condiment brings pure, delicious flavors to your table.
