The Olive Oil Source Gourmet Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
We made this extra virgin olive oil at our mill in Santa Ynez from olives harvested from a seven-acre orchard in the nearby small town of Ballard. This orchard is on a plateau at an elevation of a few hundred feet and is traditionally farmed. Temperatures typically run from the 80's in early summer to the high 90's during late summer and fall but evenings are typically quite cool, frequently layered with morning fog.
This is a very mild oil with low bitterness and moderate pungency. Harvest date: 11/2015
