Description

A medium strength olive oil with notes of grass and a pleasant peppery finish. The oil is extracted cold within hours of the olives being harvested so as to ensure that it retains it’s rich aroma and high nutrient value.

Produced exclusively from Koroneiki olives variety grown in the Chania region of northern Crete, an area which is globally acclaimed for the production of top quality olive oil and has been awarded EU PGI status.

Olives are harvested manually using the tradtional way: when the time of the harvest comes, farmers lay large, rectangular nets under the trees and use slender, hand-held poles about the size of a broom handle, to gently loosen the olives allowing them to fall into the nets below.

They then gather up the nets by hand, and using a hand-held grate, they sift the harvested olives removing any leaves or twigs that have fallen onto the nets. The olives are brought to the olive mill for same-day processing; oil is cold-extracted within hours of harvesting to ensure the natural flavour & high nutritional values of the fruit remain.

Manual harvesting is very labor intensive as one farmer can only harvest approximately 150 kilos (330 pounds) of olives a day, which may yield 15Kg (33 pounds) of olive oil; however, this gentle procedure is key to ensure a fresh, premium tasting olive oil with a delicate aroma.
