Our Catalan oil is again a 100% monocultivar (single-varietal) early-harvest, unfiltered, extra-virgin.  It’s groves and two mills are at Montroig del Camp (DOP Siurana) and Flix (DOP Terra Alta, both just north of the gorgeous old Roman city Tarragona.  You may perceive notes of tomato, banana, and ripe fruit.  It has that marvelous early-harvest slight bitterness, the hallmark of every early-harvest olive oil, and it is spicy.

I am as crazy about the whole of Catalunya as I am about our Catalan arbequina early-harvest olive oil. Our arbequina oil is super-high in anti-oxidants (polyphenols), yet is buttery, fruity and mild, gentle, smooth, suave, sophisticated. Enjoy those whiffs of banana, grass. Mildly peppery with just a hint of that wonderful incipient early-harvest bitterness. The glorious, gorgeous venue of the olive groves within this southern section of Catalunya is called Les Garrigues. We are surrounded here by not just olive groves, but marcona almond groves and vineyards.

Our beloved early-harvest monocultivar is selected, milled and exported to Olive Oil Jones by my longtime bro and director of Olis de Catalunya (the famous, 20,000-farmer co-operative) Pere Mateo. Pere is barely 50, extremely handsome, a Catalan superstar. I always urge him to run for elective office, but he demurs. He loves his connection to the farmers, the olives, the almonds, the wines.
