As one of the main daytime pollinators of the world’s food supply, the bee represents a natural indicator of the health of the Nobleza del Sur’s olive groves. To help bring attention to issues of climate change and the overuse of pesticides in agriculture, both of which threaten the world’s bee population, the producers of Nobleza del Sur chose the bee to represent their early harvest organic DAY extra virgin olive oil. Made from 100% Picual olives harvested and bottled on their private family estate, this fruity, green, herbaceous oil has aromas of banana and apple peel, with a fresh taste, slight bitterness, and moderately spicy finish. This oil forms an excellent pairing with a variety of meats, seafood, and hard cheeses. It also works nicely both in sauce preparations and for finishing desserts like chocolate ice cream.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Buy Olive Oil Online?

It is a proven fact that in just eight hours of close exposure to strong fluorescent lights, a bottle of olive oil packed in a clear glass bottle will be totally destroyed having lost its color, flavors and aromas. While oil packed in a dark glass bottle offers considerably better protection, it too becomes vulnerable when exposed to strong light and can be completely destroyed in less than a week, which makes purchasing olive oil in a supermarket a less than desirable prospect.

Beyond that, the vast majority of the oils sold in the USA have inadequate or even misleading labels. The consumer is given little to no information as to where the oil was actually produced or from what variety of olives it was made, but most importantly, WHEN the oil was harvested.

What Are Some Of The Best Olive Oils?

Simply put, the best olive oils are extra virgin olive oils. However, adulteration of extra virgin olive oil is a hot topic in the past and present, and many studies continue to examine the contents inside a bottle of olive oil. This problem still persists in the industry, especially at the supermarket level.

That's why we created Olive Oil Lovers: to bring some of the world's best olive oils from the most trusted producers to the U.S. market. All of our producers are quality driven in their manufacturing practices. We also conduct an intensive screening of every producer and product on our site - often visting their estates and seeing their practices first-hand - and accept only producers who meet our high standards. To go the extra mile, all of our imported oils are proven extra virgin through chemical analysis in accordance to strict European Union regulations. Therefore, you can trust that any oil you purchase with us at Olive Oil Lovers will be genuine, 100% extra virgin olive oil.

How Long Will Olive Oil Last After The Harvest Date?

There are two dates that producers may choose to print on a bottle, using either one or both. The "Use By" date is what our producers put on their products to say, "use when at its freshest quality." The taste and quality of the oil doesn't typically diminish over time though, unless it's open and exposed to oxygen.

The "Harvest Date" is when the olives for the oil were actually picked and crushed. This date can be any time between late October to mid-December for the Northern Hemisphere, and these new harvest olive oils begin to arrive in the United States in February and March the following year. For oils from the Southern Hemisphere, from countries such as Chile or South Africa, harvest occurs any time between late April to mid-June.

When Is Olive Oil Considered Past its Prime?

While this answer can vary depending on the olive variety, time of harvest, and how the product is stored, in general an extra virgin olive oil will retain much of its flavor and aromas for 18-30 months in an unopened container. However, any exposure to light and/or oxygen will begin to degrade the oil. Once opened, olive oil should be consumed ideally within 1-2 months, with a maximum of perhaps 4-6 months. When purchasing a 3L or 5L tin, if the oil is typically not consumed within this timeframe, we recommend decanting the oil into smaller, sealed containers and storing in a cool, dark place.

Olive oils with higher polyphenol counts will have a longer shelf-life. Higher polyphenol numbers are the result of both the olive variety and when the olive was harvested. Green olives harvested early in the season produce less oil, but have higher polyphenol counts than oils from ripe olives. You can find the polyphenol counts for many of our extra virgin olive oils listed on their product page.
