Description

Since the 1990s, Jordan Winery has strived to craft the best, extra virgin olive oil in Sonoma County, California, that honors the extra virgin olive oil making traditions of Italy and Spain.

Small in size but big on flavor, the 2018 vintage is one we didn’t think could even be released for sale due to its miniscule size of just one ton of olives—compared to a typical harvest of nearly 20. Only available this winter, the 2018 Jordan Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a deep, golden hue and rich texture, thanks to the full ripeness achieved from a later harvest. Pretty aromas of butter and dried grass lead to a round, buttery palate with notes of dried grass and marcona almonds. The finish is smooth with lingering hints of white pepper.

During harvest, fruit was either handpicked in the brucatura tradition or shaken into special nets. Olives were milled within 12-18 hours of harvest, and the oil was never filtered or heated during the milling process. Only the Spanish Arbequina olives were able to be kept separate from harvesting through processing due to the small crop. The master blend of 29% Arbequina and 71% Blended Tuscan (Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino) was bottled by our staff in June.
