A super-early harvest Barnea with a strong herbaceous aroma and flavor. Herbal notes of freshly crushed parsley and fennel dominate the bouquet. The finish is quite peppery with commanding pungency. This remarkable E.V.O.O. won a highly coveted Gold Medal at the 2013 New York Olive Oil Competition. It is wonderful for a vibrant salad or chilled vegetable drizzle. Pair with Aged Tangerine or Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Condimento. Fabulous…we know it’s a winner.
