2016 Extra Virgin Olive Oil (250ml)

Mardouw’s Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced with up-to-date knowledge and olive fruit; a blend of mainly Frantoio, FS17 and Mission olives; each contributing specific characteristic to the final product. Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the natural fruit juice that has been extracted from olives at a temperature below 30°C, and without any additions or modifications. It has zero defects on sensory tasting and meets certain chemical tests to ensure that the free acidity (oleic acid) value is 0.8% or lower and the peroxides are less than 20meg/kg. Mardouw guarantees these conditions. The oil is allowed to settle in stainless steel tanks for ±2 months before being pumped off the residue. It is then blended to provide the final flavour profile and kept in perfect conditions until it is bottled. The bottle is sealed with a tamper proof pourer that guarantees that the bottle of oil you open was filled at Mardouw Olive Estate.
