Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2012
Tasting Notes: Excitingly spicy, fresh and assertive. Lively flavours of pepper and spice up
front are supported by a mixture of garden herbs on the mid palate overlaid with
a gentle nutty tone. On the nose, cayenne pepper, freshly cut grass and hints of cedar. In colour it is a
bright brooding green and gleams with vitality. Harvested earlier than most to
capture spicy flavours and vibrant colour. A salad dressing on its own, as a pasta oil or just for dipping good bread!
Harvest notes: Picked over 4 weeks in late May early June with our ailing Italian hand olive shaker! Harvested earlier than most to capture spicy flavours and vibrant colour. Predominantly Frantoio, but with Koronaki and SA Verdale also in the blend. Minimal intervention, no spraying and only light pruning after a heavy pruning the year before.
