2021 Estate Grown Olive Oil (275ML)
The Coplan Vineyards 2021 estate-grown olive oil is a very limited production of only 16 cases! Because the production is so small and precious, we're only providing it to those who purchase a case or more of wine.
The olives were harvested from our small orchard that we planted in 2013. Our “Olio Nuovo” (Italian for “new oil”) is only available for a few short months following the November harvest. This is the freshest olive oil available and we’re pretty sure this may be the best tasting olive oil you’ve ever tasted.
We hand selected and hand planted 25 Tuscan varietal trees in 2013. We selected Frantoio, Leccino, Coratina and Manzanilla olive trees to make the blend. It’s been a thrill seeing them grow from their original 5 gallon containers to beautiful, full-grown, productive trees. We planted an additional 50 trees in 2019, including more Franoio, as well as some Mission olive trees. The resulting oil has aromas of fresh cut grass with flavors of artichoke and green tea and a slight peppery finish. It is well-balanced, with robust flavor and a beautiful olive fruitiness. It is bold enough to stand on its own on bruschetta or fresh crab, but will also blend beautifully as an ingredient in your more intricate recipes.
The olives were picked from our organic (not certified) orchard, then milled on the same day locally in Sonoma. We bottled one week later and hand-labeled the bottles.
