Buttery and oh so creamy, this early harvest Francisco Gomez arbequina is a beautiful example of the cultivar. Picked before the olives start to turn pink. This is before version, they harvest at the end of September, or early October, weeks before a typical harvest would begin. This organic arbequina extra virgin olive oil is part of the Serrata lineup from Francesco Gomez. It has a mild-medium intensity and is bold, beautiful and well-balanced. Francisco Gomez is a very large 3,500-hectare grove with many varieties and is ultimately focused on quality over almost everything else.
This Francisco Gomez arbequina is delightful for baking. It’s delicious in pancakes, or even these carrot cake muffins and scones, it is a perfect butter substitute.
