A medium intensity Early Harvest Single Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the mountain village of Christianoupolis in Messenia, Greece, this oil has a perfectly balanced complexity: fruity with a slight bitterness and a lingering peppery finish. Early harvest oil, pressed from olives harvested before they are fully ripe, is especially rich in antioxidants and poly-phenols due to the higher level of chlorophyll in the olives. Cold extracted and unfiltered, this oil features the rich flavor, vivid color and low acidity associated with the Koroneiki olive. USDA Certified Organic.
Harvest Date: October 2021
Acidity (as oleic acid): 0.28%
Total polyphenols: 468
Because our oil is unfiltered, it may appear slightly cloudy or there may be sediment at the bottom of the bottle. This is due to the small bits of olive pulp present in the oil, which only serve to enhance its flavor and aroma.
