Doña María De Noguerones 

Baena-Andalucía-Spain

Gabino Mesa has created this fine oil from his own family’s grove rather than that of Canoliva as for our 2017 Baena. Gabi’s grove is ten minutes from Baena, and outside the Baena name-control (DO), thus the name change. From spicy, bold picudo, fat and sassy carrasqueño, and the superstar nuance-y picual, 

Gabino has sent numerous photos that thrill us, and he says:

“The name of the olive grove is Doña María, passed down from my grandfather Gabino to my father Julian, now to me…and in the future I hope that my son Alejandro will continue with this tradition. It’s a bit of a sacrifice. Days off you have to go and work the olives, but it’s a pity if we would lose something that has been here for so many years, and you can’t imagine how many families make their living out of this. Traditional farming is losing a battle against INTENSIVE and SUPER-INTENSIVE farming, recollected with huge machinery, lower costs, etc., etc. But the question we have to ask ourselves is: Is it worthwhile to turn a tradition into a factory?”

We say Doña Maria De Noguerones is an elegant oil. Despite its humble origin Gabino’s vast expertise and devotion to ‘organic’ and ‘un-filtered’, and his subsequent milling technique that employs the ne plus ultra two-phase centrifuge mill, this remarkable oil is deeply complex with its early-harvest spiciness and billowing fragrance. Fresh-cut grass and wildflowers, wild herbs, green apple, citrus…. Smooth, creamy, dense, elegantly bitter, tomato leaf, sweet.
