Winner Winner! We are thrilled to announce that our new season 2021 Frantoio Extra Virgin Olive Oil is off to a great start, taking out a silver medal at the world's premier olive oil competition, the NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition. Read more about the award and competition on our blog.
Our Frantoio is an (Australian grown) Italian varietal that has a sweet, fruity aroma with a hint of citrus. This is a medium-style oil that has notes of apple, walnut and fresh herbs. Smooth and creamy with a lovely peppery finish. Use for frying and roasting, dressings or marinades.
A versatile oil that can be used for all applications including frying, finishing your favourite dishes, or as part of a marinade. We love to use it as the base for homemade pesto!
Analysis from previous harvest (2021 results coming soon):
- Free Fatty Acid (FFA) 0.35% (Parameter to be considered EVOO <0.8%)
- Total Biophenols 269ppm (antioxidants)
Bag-in-Box Freshness is the key to quality olive oil and with that in mind we have developed the perfect packaging for our larger volume (2L and 15L) EVOO products. The 'bag in box' protects our oil from its two greatest enemies - light and oxygen, keeping the oil fresher, for longer.
Our Premium Promise All Mount Zero Olive Oil is cold-pressed (room temperature) just hours after harvest to maintain premium quality. Similarly, our 100% Australian olive oils come from the first pressing of the olives which is what the term 'extra virgin' refers to.
Don't Spill a Drop! We've added a new and improved tap system to the 2L bag-in-box products and want to make sure you don't lose a drop! To eliminate wastage and mess, please turn the tap off until you feel a 'click'. And voila! Fresh extra virgin olive oil for the life of the product.
