Morgenster Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2020

Morgenster Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil 2020

Estate grown, pressed and bottled in Stellenbosch, the acclaimed wine and olive growing region outside of Capetown, South Africa, this is southern hemisphere perfection. Each of the 17 Italian olive varietals are handpicked, pressed and stored separately in stainless steel tanks. The oil is allowed to settle longer than other oils, enabling the sediment to separate naturally before it’s siphoned off (without the need for a filtration system). Less sediment improves the quality of the oil and extends the shelf life. The terroir of Stellenbosch is perfect for producing high quality olive oil. The rain runs off of the rocky soil quickly, meaning no excess water ends up in the fruit (less water, of course, leading to higher anti-oxidants). The coastal location offers consistent, cool sea breezes that slow the ripening process, giving the olives more time to develop. This oil offers a yearly consistent flavor profile, intensely fruity with tastes of artichokes, green apples and almonds followed by a long, peppery finish.

$27.50 the 500ml bottle
