Waiheke Blend 2014
Initially, this blend was created only from the Olives grown at Stonyridge Vineyard but now cuttings from these trees have been established at Rangihoua and one other grove on Waiheke to create this most unique blend. The trees are believed to be Verdale, Mission and Ascalano.
The oil has a good creamy base with overtones of herbs, apple, apple peel and a late peppery finish. Delicious for dipping, ailoi and on green beans, asparagus, mesculin salad and white meat. A versatile EVOO which can be used in most culinary applications.
Our Waiheke Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a “supreme Champion” winner in 2012 (NZ Royal Easter Show – see news article) and in 2014 , once again a Gold & best in class winner!
It is unusual to describe an olive oil as being sweet but after an initial grassy beginning, this oil changes in the mid-palate, to floral fruity sweetness – like banana and guava – with a finish of nasturtium flowers.
Great with tomatoes, pasta, and any Asian style salads or vegetable dishes.
Frantoio Blend 2014
A blend of Frantoio and Pendolino. The aroma of this blend is freshly cut grass. It tastes initially quite creamy and nutty then changes through the middle to green capsicum with a distinctive agrugula (rocket) finish.
Wonderful drizzled on Pasta, red meats and great on Greek salads and mushrooms.
