Waiheke Blend 2020

NZD $14.00NZD $58.00

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.

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 finish and is delicious for dipping, aioli and on green beans, asparagus, mesclun salad and white meat. A versatile EVOO which can be used in most culinary applications.

See Tasting Notes below.

Our Waiheke Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been a consistent winner notably “supreme Champion” winner in 2012 and in 2014 and 2016, voted Gold & Best In Class winner – see awards below.

Tasting Notes (2020):

PUNGENT the one word to describe the 2020 evoos. 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.
