Editor's Pick: Cobram Estates

The very first extra virgin olive oil from the 2015 harvest. Now that's something to live up to.

Hand-selected olives from the company's favorite varietals, Hojiblanca, Picual and Coratina, were all picked in mid-March for Cobram Estates' 2015 Ultra Premium First Harvest.

For me, my extra virgin olive oil selections sit on a pedestal in the kitchen. They play a major role in my cooking, and belittling a meal with a refined oil with very little flavor, aroma or color seems an amateur mistake.

This vibrant green oil is incredibly clean leaving a crisp palate of intense and pretty complex flavors. Freshly cut grass, green apples, tomato vines and even tropical fruits can be picked up in its aroms to deliver a super fruity and flavorsome taste. There's a medium level of bitterness here, and it's rich in the goodness you'd expect from great olive oil.
