Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Early Crush Date: Oct 2019
Country of Origin: Turkey
Medium - Polyphenols: 384
The country of Turkey produces a lot of olive oil from many
different varieties, and Ayvalik is the most widely grown.
This medium-mild oil is very well made from early harvested
fruit. It has a nice floral and fresh herbaceous aroma. The balance
of mild bitterness, strong fruitiness, and sharp pungency is
just perfect. It also has a good mix of ripe and green fruity flavours.
The ripe flavours are both tropical and citrus. The green flavours
are herbs, grass, artichoke, green apple, mint, cinnamon,
and black pepper.
