2018 Jordan Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Gift Box

Description

Since the 1990s, Jordan Winery has strived to craft the best olive oil in Sonoma County, California, that honors the extra virgin olive oil making traditions of Italy and Spain. This olive oil gift box is the perfect gift for those who love to cook.

A vintage for the record books, 2018 was small in size but big on flavor. Just one ton of olives were harvested late in the season with optimum ripeness, giving the 2018 Jordan Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil its deep, golden hue and buttery, rich texture. 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.

Once optimal ripeness was achieved, 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 tiny crop. The master blend of 29% Arbequina and 71% Blending Tuscan (Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino) was bottled by our staff in June.

 
Available exclusively at the Jordan Estate or on our website.
 
This olive oil gift box includes one 375mL bottle, packaged in a Jordan gift box made of recycled materials.
 
A personalized Jordan notecard can be included with any gift box order.
