16.0025.50

Entelechia olive oil comes from the excellent quality green olive of Chalkidiki. It is produced exclusively by cold pressing, preserving its rich taste, aroma and color.

SIZE: 250ml, 500ml

AREA OF PRODUCTION: Gomati – Chalkidiki

TYPE: Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality category of olive oil that one can consume. By definition it must have free fatty acid level below 0,8%, zero organoleptic defects and a fruity flavor. For better quality, it must be derived by cold extraction in temperature below 27oC.
VARIETY: Chondrolia
This variety comes from the area of Chalkidiki in northern Greece. The fruit of the olives are very big and give olive oil rich in beneficial phenolic compounds, with aromas of grass, herbs, pepper and tomato with a balanced but intense bitter and spicy taste.
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: Fresh grass, olive and tomato leaves, artichoke and almond.
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.

Description

It is characterized by a bitter and spicy taste with a long aftertaste, because it belongs to medium intensity olive oils. Its fragrances remind you of fresh grass, olive and tomato leaves, artichoke and almond. In addition, its important antioxidant substances as well as the vitamins it contains (A, K, D) are preserved, while its acidity remains low.

We preserve the Entelechia olive oil in an elegant glass bottle. Its dark color protects the olive oil from light and maintains its excellent quality. Each bottle of 250ml & 500ml encloses our spirit, the Aristotelian philosophy, Entelechy. It’s the path from seed to plant, from olives to olive oil, that we call integration.

Meet the Producer

We are fortunate to live between the homeland of Aristotle and Mount Athos. Our land is Gomati, a picturesque settlement on the Eastern side of Chalkidiki. The excellent quality of the soil interacts with the unique median microclimate. These best environmental conditions are the factors that contribute to the cultivation of the olive.

The green olive of Chalkidiki belongs to the variety “Chondroelia” & “Chalkidiki” of the species Olea Europea, which is unique in the world and has been cultivated for 2000 years. It is the largest fruited green olive among the Greek varieties. This variety is used for olive oil production and for eating the fruit of the olive. The adaptation of the olive trees to the soil and climatic conditions of the area are reflected in the slightly bitter taste of the olive and its gentle fruity aroma.
