Our range of Australian grown extra virgin olive oil is blended for balance, flavour and freshness.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is essentially a fruit juice. It is pressed and extracted to maintain the very best characteristics, and to ensure that the most incredible flavour and health benefits are preserved. Extra Virgin Olive Oil has three key characteristics: fruitiness, bitterness and pungency. At Mount Zero we believe the key is to have balance across these three characteristics, and we hope the consumer agrees.
