Grampians Olive Co.
Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our 2021 Signature oil is a unique early harvest style with fruity, herbaceous flavours and a subtle peppery finish. Cold pressed from olive varieties including the rare Bouqettier, Mission and Verdale, this organic oil is unfiltered, unrefined and lovingly hand-bottled in small batches. Our heritage trees rely solely on natural rainfall and once picked, olives are cold pressed immediately producing a low yield of ultra-premium organic olive oil – beautifully concentrated in flavour. On average our trees produce just one precious litre of organic olive oil each, so a 15L cask contains the entire annual production of 15 trees!

Judge's tasting notes: "Intense, fresh, clean complex aromas of pine, green herbs, green beans and grass. Very good transfer with an increase in intensity with green apples, rocket and sorrel. Creamy mouthfeel and very good texture. A hint of sweetness mid-palate. Moderate bitterness and a late, building white pepper pungency. Long, lingering finish with well-integrated fruit, bitterness and pungency. A very harmonious oil."

Glass bottles have a pourer insert to control flow, tins have a pull up pouring spout, and casks (bag in box) have a tap. The cask tap provides great drizzling control and is drip free (turn off the tap until you feel a click). Our casks are also BPA free and keep oil fresher for longer by excluding air. Read more about casks and shelf life. 15L casks and 20L tins both have taps and we include a free empty bottle and pourer for easy decanting.
