Arbequina Olive Tree in California

Okay, we say it is the freshest olive oil, but what else do we know about Olio Nuovo? What is it? To me, it's bold, pungent, and joy. When I pair it up with other dishes, it is so delicious that literally, it brings me joy. Also, it's well-known for the following factors:

  • Flavorful and spicier
  • Much more antioxidant polyphenol
  • Fresh off the mill to a bottle

How Is Olio Nuovo Different from Normal Finished Olive Oil?

Maybe it is the best to compare Olio Nuovo with finished olive oil to learn about it. Normally when the olive is milled, it is rested for several weeks to months waiting for the sediments to settle which allows flavor to mellow, then transferred only pure oil part into a bottle. This is a normal finished bottle of extra virgin olive oil which is still flavorful and wonderfully delicious.

Yet Olio Nuovo is greener, bolder, and spicer. As you see the photo above, the left greener one is as you guessed Olio Nuovo and the right clearer one is finished olive oil.

Olio Nuovo is picked, pressed, then directly goes from the mill to the bottle preserving all the unsettled sediments (the reason why it has such a green color) along with full of savories and the antioxidant polyphenol. 

"You don't know olive oil until you have tasted Olio Nuovo"

It's usually more pungent and peppery which brings so much savory. Some say you don’t know olive oil until you have tasted Olio Nuovo. We will leave it up to you to decide that.

What Is This Olio Nuovo Flavor Profile?

I know we talked a lot how wonderful and how fresh this Olio Nuovo is, but we haven't talked about its flavor. Just like wine and coffee, olive oil has various flavor profiles depends on olive varieties, blends, soil, and many others. Among the many variables, olive variety is the key factor for its flavor profile.

This Seka Hills 2017 Estate Olio Nuovo is made out of arbequina which is a specialty of Seka Hills. (In fact, Seka Hills won multip awards with the Arbequina Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil including 2013 Olive Japan International EVOO Competition Gold, 2013 California Olive Oil Council EVOO Competition Silver, and many others.)

Arbequina is originally from Spain and well known for its artichoke and green apple aroma with low bitterness and pungency. But when it's bottled immediately after milling process, it becomes Olio Nuovo which is now high bitterness and pungency. Arbequina can yield dull aroma of olive oil when it is milled with hot temperature and not milled properly. Seka Hills has perfected its milling process over the years and produces this delicious arbequina Olio Nuovo, pungent and flavorful with artichoke and green apple aroma.

So you can imagine how combining the characteristics of Olio Nuovo and Seka Hills' know-how of arbequina makes one prized delicious olive oil. Just you know you can bring this delicious olive oil to your home today.
