Frantoio – South Africa
Crush Date May 2023
This is one of the finest Frantoio olive oils we have ever tasted! The aroma has nuanced floral overtones and ample fresh-cut-grass. The mouthfeel is of medium-robust intensity with strong pungency, moderate bitterness, and extreme fruitiness. The oil has many complexities including mild ripe fruit flavours of apple, butter, and nuttiness that balance the spicy green herbal flavours of green grass, artichoke, green apple, mint, cinnamon, and black pepper. Simply fabulous!

How is Extra Virgin Olive Oil made?
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made by crushing olives to extract their juices. The crushed olives are then pressed to separate the oil from the solids and water. Finally, the oil is separated and filtered to produce the pure extra virgin olive oil we use for cooking and other purposes.
Cold-Pressed means that no heat or chemicals were used during extraction, preserving the oil’s natural flavours and nutritional quality.
First-pressed means the olive oil was extracted in a single pressing, with no second pressing as in the case of some other oils, like seed oils.
