Our hands from tree to bottle: 2009 Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our 2009 Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil released on Saturday, May 1, in conjunction with our Spring at Jordan event. This vintage has special significance to me because it shows our stylistic progression to a rounder mid-palate EVOO, thanks to the addition of more fruit from our young Arbequina trees. We also utilized an innovative mobile mill to cold press the fruit next to our olive groves within six hours of harvest even though 24 hours is the standard for extra virgin oils. (Previous vlog posts on the 2009 olive harvest, racking and blending can be found in our From the Land section.)
Our May Jordan Estate Rewards offering included this video, which discusses our philosophy and shows the many hands of Jordan that nurture our EVOO from tree to bottle.
