Sharply aromatic aroma which is very herbaceous with cut wet grass, salad leaves and culinary herbs. Lemon skin citrus tones with kumquats follow on with a touch of green tomatoes and apples.
Sweet salad bowl of flavours with green leaves, artichokes, cut herbs and tomatoes with a lemony tang. This is followed by a burst of pepper with very light bitterness that fades to leave a sweet, leafy after-taste with some tomato skins and a touch of nuts which lingers on for some time.
This is a delicate style of oil with a good deal of character.
This is an excellent olive oil. There is an interesting and appealing complexity in the aromas and an attractively sweet taste with a well balanced peppery punch that never swamps the flavour tones. The after taste reflects the aromas and flavours and lingers in the mouth.
A delicate-bodied oil with considerable personality (itself a rarity). Gentle pungency and almost no bitterness – in fact a pleasing impression of sweetness, yet cleanness in the mouth. Delicate aromas of green vegetables and herbs.
