Bodega Nekeas Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A Valley’s Pride

This medi¬≠um-inten¬≠si¬≠ty EVOO from Navarre, Spain gains an advan¬≠tage from its mill‚Äôs prox¬≠im¬≠i¬≠ty to the Pyre¬≠nees Moun¬≠tains in the north and the Ebro Riv¬≠er Val¬≠ley in the south. Arbe¬≠quina olives are high¬≠ly aro¬≠mat¬≠ic and the result¬≠ing oil has a spicy bite and smooth, silky tex¬≠ture. Comes in 750ml and 5L variants.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Bode¬≠ga Nekeas claims the most norther¬≠ly olive groves in Spain, which ben¬≠e¬≠fit from the climes of both the cool Atlantic and the warm Mediter¬≠ranean. Because of atyp¬≠i¬≠cal cool sea¬≠sons for part of the year in the Navarre region, their Arbe¬≠quina EVOO has faint¬≠ly sweet and but¬≠tery under¬≠tones with uni¬≠ver¬≠sal appeal. Sam¬≠pled on its own, this clean, green monocul¬≠ti¬≠var oil pos¬≠sess¬≠es leafy notes with a hint of fennel.

PAIR­INGS

While the Bode¬≠ga Nekeas Arbe¬≠quina EVOO adds a unique under¬≠tone to any appe¬≠tiz¬≠er, it is won¬≠der¬≠ful for cook¬≠ing. It goes espe¬≠cial¬≠ly well in roast¬≠ed pork and pota¬≠to dish¬≠es or in veg¬≠etable saut√©s. A small caveat, though: this par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar oil has a short shelf-life and must be stored in a cool, dark place so it does not lose fla¬≠vor over time.

FROM THE LAND OF WINE AND OLIVES

Bode¬≠ga Nekeas pro¬≠duces both wines and olives year-round, with some of its vines and trees well over a hun¬≠dred years old. A cul¬≠ti¬≠vat¬≠ed form of diver¬≠si¬≠ty is the key to their suc¬≠cess, with blocks of tem¬≠pranil¬≠lo, gar¬≠nacha, and mer¬≠lot inter¬≠spersed with Arbe¬≠quina and Arr√≥niz olive groves. They give tours of both the win¬≠ery and mill, includ¬≠ing tast¬≠ings of their prod¬≠ucts paired with typ¬≠i¬≠cal local appe¬≠tiz¬≠ers. This small pock¬≠et of Span¬≠ish excel¬≠lence is still rel¬≠a¬≠tive¬≠ly under¬≠rat¬≠ed, but its fruits speak for them¬≠selves. The Bode¬≠ga Nekeas Arbe¬≠quina EVOO has won either Gold or Sil¬≠ver Awards in the NYIOOC World Olive Oil Com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠tion for sev¬≠er¬≠al years.
