The Hojiblanca (okee-blanca) is a Spanish olive variety from Lucena, Spain, and is chosen for the Cobram Estate Ultra Premium Range for it’s unique delicate aromas, with harmonious flavours on the palate.
Cobram Estate award-winning Extra Virgin Olive Oil is first cold-pressed from olives grown on the banks of the Murray River, where the Mediterranean climate and fertile red soils guarantee premium quality. The 2020 Reserve Hojiblanca was produced using their proprietary ‘Ultra-Premium’ technique. Small, select parcels of Hojiblanca olives were picked at optimum ripeness and ultra cold-pressed into oil within 4 hours in the on-site mill. After pressing, this single variety oil was allowed to settle before being tasted by the trained panel and classified as ‘Reserve’ quality – a grade only applied by our oil makers when the oil is truly exceptional.
The unique oil making method showcases the varietal characters of the oil, delivering exceptionally fragrant, complex and flavoursome Extra Virgin Olive Oils. The 2020 Reserve Hojiblanca is an aromatic oil displaying intense and complex aromas of fresh cut grass, green bananas and tropical fruits. Its sweet and creamy flavours on the palate combine with medium levels of bitterness and a slight late pungency.

Over the years I've been gradually upping my olive oil game. My staple recipes are largely unchanged - especially with things like roast chicken and fish. However, I've noticed that flavor profiles change as the quality of the olive oil improves. Safe to say that this ultra premium olive oil is so far, the "uppest" that I have been able to get to for olive oil.
