he coexistence of more than one variety creates a different and interesting taste experience, combining the aromatic elements, the intensities but also the general characteristics of each variety.
ACIDITY: 0,18
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.
