VARIETY: Manaki
Manaki variety is mostly grown in the region of Argolis in the Peloponnese. A variety that matures slowly and can thrive in high altitudes. The harvest period starts from the end of October until the beginning of January. The olive oil produced is sweeter than most varieties, with mild bitter and spicy taste and aromas of tomato, apple, banana and grass. 
ACIDITY: <0,3
Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition EVOO it must have free fatty acid level below 0,8%. This value is always determined by a chemical laboratory and cannot be detected by sensory analysis (you cannot taste it).
AROMAS: Intense fruity aroma and taste of freshly chopped herbs, tomatoes, herbs, green banana and artichoke.
Contrary to many people’s beliefs, olive oil aromas are not endogenous to the fruit, but are produced by the activity of olive enzymes in the olive oil extraction process (crushing-malaxation). They depend largely on the variety of the olive, the degree of ripeness of the fruit at harvest as well as the milling practices.
HARVEST: Fall 2020
As any fresh and very sensitive to oxidation product, olive oil must be consumed within 18 months from the harvest time, for enjoying all its aromas, flavors and health benefits. In the Northern Hemisphere where Greece is, the harvest is taking place from October to January.

It is the result of our deep love and knowledge for the olive, its precious fruits and the production of high quality olive oil. “Respect the natural cycle of growing trees and you will be rewarded,” Grandpa George kept saying, and this advice was a commitment for us.
