Formerly called Olio Nuovo, Limited Reserve is sold during — and a short time after — the olive harvest.
What makes this oil so special?
TASTE: When you put a spoonful of Limited Reserve in your mouth, you experience a peppery, fruity, pleasantly bitter burst of fresh olive oil taste.
AVAILABILITY: The California Olive Ranch team bottles Limited Reserve just once a year. It doesn’t even make it to store shelves because it’s made to order.
USE BY DATE: You must open and consume this oil much sooner. Its eight-month shelf life is less than half that of our other oils. That’s because we don’t put Limited Reserve into tanks at our two mills for a few months to allow the fruit particles and other sediment to settle. Those fruit particles eventually ferment.
Limited Reserve is great tossed with pasta. You can also use it to prepare a seasonal dish of sautéed pumpkin cubes and cannellini beans. Or drizzle Limited Reserve on good crusty bread and sprinkle with some flaky sea salt. The possibilities are endless.
