FLAVOUR PROFILE

Our flagship Directors’ Reserve Extra Virgin Olive Oil is delicately composed to satisfy the flavour preference of the directors. The result is an ultra-premium quality olive oil that reflects our passion and personal commitment.

It is invariably a robust oil which will appeal to any olive oil connoisseur. The dominant cultivars in this blend are Coratina and Frantoio.

Complex aromas of artichokes and tomato vines are followed by the flavour of fresh rocket and salad herbs while the satisfying bitterness and tingling pungency gives body to the oil without overpowering the flavour.
