Harvested early in mid-October, the arbequina has an aroma that is reminiscent of green banana with hints of green apple. The aromas follow through to the palate, recognizing the green fruits without overt bitterness. The arbequina has a soft finish, but still a bit of pepper at the end. This premium extra virgin olive oil is a perfect finish for delicate fish dishes. It works on all kind of salads and vinaigrettes and adds flavor without overpowering dressings or aioli. O-Med Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil is very recommendable for baking and desserts, including olive oil ice cream.
Packaging options: 500ml white bottle, 250ml and 1L tins
Owned and operated by the Garcia-Casas family in Acula, Andalusia, in southern Spain, O-Med have been harvesting their own olive trees for four generations and producing extra virgin olive oil for two. In 2005 they purchased a mill in order to produce the highest quality olive oil possible by controlling each step of the process from olive groves to mill to bottle. O-Med produces early harvest EVOO in order to preseve the best organoleptic properties in the oils. As farmers, sustainability is of foremost importance to O-Med where solar power and an incinerator which burns the olive pits produce 40% of the mill's energy needs. O-Med is a founding member of QvExtra, a seal which certifies quality level is higher than current legislative requirements.
