Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced with the most up-to-date expertise and plant material; a blend of several Italian cultivars renowned for the excellent oil they produce; each contributing specific characteristic to the final product. The term Extra Virgin relates to the level of fatty acid in the oil, must be <0.8% to qualify and is ultimately determined by the temperature at which the oil is extracted. Our state of the art machinery guarantees that every drop of Morgenster Olive oil produced has an acidity of <0.3%. The oil is allowed to settle in stainless steel tanks before being pumped off the sediment. It is then blended to provide the ultimate flavour profile and kept in pristine conditions until it is bottled to order in the now distinctive Morgenster embossed bottle. The bottle is sealed with a tamper proof pourer that guarantees that the bottle of oil you open was filled in the factory at Morgenster Olive and Wine Estate.

Tasting Notes
NOSE: The first whiff is intense freshly cut grass. By warming the oil slightly with your hand the secondary aromas of green tomatoes, almonds, artichokes and perhaps even green apples will become for more evident.
PALATE: When tasting an olive oil, you should put enough oil in your mouth to roll around your mouth and cover your tongue. To get the most off the palate, suck some air into your mouth to aspirate the oil - this will allow you to notice the flavours of the individual component oils. You will also notice the consistency of the oil. The Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive oil will present you with medium to intense concentration of fruit flavours, it's an intense oil that leaves you with a very clean finish. As you swallow the oil you will notice a pleasant bitterness on the roof of your mouth and a peppery burn down the back of your throat - both distinct characteristics of an excellent quality oil.
