Blending, as with wine, is a vital
component of the process of producing the finest olive oils. Each year, once the harvest is completed,
the team under the leadership of Prof Fontanazza and Gerrie Duvenage make up
the best possible blend from the individually stored oils to world standards. The final blend depends on each year's individual
crop and reflects the character of the season.
The oil is kept at a constant cool
temperature in stainless steel tanks, ready for bottling in the distinct
Morgenster embossed bottle.
Packaging is critical, not only in
terms of recognition of the product but also for protection of the oil
itself. The Morgenster bottle is dark
and made from a special UV reflective glass to protect the oil from the
elements of light and heat, ensuring it reaches the customer in perfect
this, the Morgenster bottle features a tamper proof seal which prevents the
bottle from being refilled. This is the
consumer's guarantee that what is in the bottle is exactly what was poured into
it in the Morgenster factory.
elements of the packaging are oil resistant labels, certification by SAOlive
and the Best Before date.
