250ml. Parioli Olive Grove is a small Central Otago family run grove of 408 trees. Most of the trees have now reached full maturity and bear a full crop of fruit. The main varieties of trees grown are Barnea, Minerva, South Australian Veradale, Frantoio and Chamlali.
As is the style of boutique oils, our oil varies from year to year and variety to variety, much the same as wines vary by vintage and variety of grape. Central Otago oils show strong character and have distinctive flavours, often with a peppery finish. The oil tends to have a greener colour as the chlorophyll content of the olive is still quite high when we pick. This comes through to the oil when it is pressed.
