Tasting Notes (2020)
PUNGENT the one word to describe the 2020 evoos. A very dry Autumn in 2019 and then a Spring and Summer drought has intensified the tastes to another level with very complex vegetative and herb tastes and lingering pepper at the end. The anti-oxidant levels are sure to be very high.
Waiheke Blend – our signature blend combines Ascolano, Mission and Verdale olive varieties. This medium-intensity oil has a delightfully light and creamy start with a hint of almonds, building to a lingering peppery finish.
Koroneiki is always a favourite for its fruity notes. Delicate, creamy and fruity, with hints of red apple and green banana.
Our Italian Frantoio Blend, combining Frantoio and Leccino olive varieties, will be sent to the Flos Oleis Italian competition once again this year and we will await the results with anticipation. Creamy, nutty and spicy, this year’s complex blend offers mid-tones of nasturtium, mesclun, green capsicum and rocket/arugula, with a prolonged chilli finish.
