Extra Virgin Mission Olive Oil 375ml
Chaffin Orchard's Extra Virgin Mission Olive Oil is cold-pressed and unfiltered. The olives come from nearly 100 year old Mission olive trees. As the trees age the olives develop more delicate and subtle flavors. In addition to this, Mission Olives are known for their soft buttery flavored oil. Often mission oil is used to tone down sharper or subpar oils in a blend to make them palatable. Very few bottled olive oils on the market are made strictly from mission olives, but the flavor that comes from pure mission oil is outstanding and we want to share this with our customers.
In addition to outstanding fruit, what makes Chaffin's oil really unique is how late we harvest the olives. We don't typically pick the fruit until well into early January which means the olives are all overripe and full of oil. Waiting to harvest the olives this late is risky because they are more susceptible to being blown off the tree in a strong wind, however the finished product is worth the risk. The olives are so mild at that point that the make an outstandingly smooth oil with no sharp or grassy bite. Try this oil yourself or give it as a gift. You will not be disappointed and we promise you will never look at olive oil the same way.
