18.00

Extra virgin olive oil special blend from Peloponnese.

SIZE: 250ml

AREA OF PRODUCTION: Peloponnese

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: Koroneiki
The “Queen” of olives. Produces a high quality, full-bodied olive oil reach in aromatic notes. Koroneiki is the most common variety used for olive oil production in Greece (60% of the olive oil production). Mostly cultivated in the south Peloponnese and Crete. Is rich in nutritional value, beneficial phenolic compounds (bitter & spicy aftertaste) and characteristic aromas of freshly-cut grass, tomato, artichoke & almond. Well balanced and excellent to pair it with almost any food and cooking application.
ACIDITY: 0,25
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: Freshly-cut grass, tomato, artichoke, almond, herbs
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.
