Yellingbo Olive Oil

Made just for us.

From a small estate in the Yellingbo Conservation Nature Reserve in Australia, the Meltzer family has created a wonderful addition to our extra virgin olive oil collection—a blend of olive varieties picked and pressed just for us, more on the robust side than their usual offering.

Yellingbo oil is made in very small quantities. The Meltzers only have 2,500 trees, and they’re not really interested in getting a whole lot bigger. Year before last they produced about 3,000 liters of oil... a very small amount compared with most of what’s being produced by others (though, to be fair, most of the oils we carry are made in similarly small quantities).

They have their own press on the farm—a rarity for oil makers—and the olives are turned into oil less than six hours after they're picked to protect their quality. That's another rarity, since twenty-four hours is considered to be very good. The oil is a blend of Manzanillo, Leccino, Picual, and Corregiola olives - a blend that was initially created specially, just for us.

Interesting aside: the Helmeted Honeyeater that graces the label is endangered but feels at home gliding through the Meltzers' orchards.

The latest harvest, bottled unfiltered, was harvested in summer (since it's from the Southern hemisphere, it's made in our early summer, their fall). The aroma reminds me of green tomatoes, with a brightness like grapefruit. The flavor is quite bitter, like arugula. The finish has a hint of that citrusy brightness from the aroma, and a peppery tingle all down the throat.
