Séka Hills Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2020 Harvest California All-Purpose Olive Oil
Aroma: Freshly cut grass and green almond
This versatile oil is of mild to medium intensity with the inviting aroma of green almonds and herbs. This fruity, balanced oil is nutty and herbaceous with hints of thyme, green tea and artichoke with both green and ripe olive notes. It is luscious in the mouth with a slight bitterness that evolves into a long peppery finish.
Uses: Séka Hills Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great everyday, all-purpose olive oil. Use for sautéing, frying, or finishing. Ideal for vinaigrettes, pasta, mashed potatoes, or to finish grilled vegetables. Try using it to fry your eggs in the morning. Plus, this estate-made oil is a great dipping oil with dukkah or other spices
