This is an organically grown, hand picked, cold pressed, unfiltered extra virgin olive oil. It is a single cultivar oil using only J5 olives a variety exclusive to northern New Zealand.
The olives are picked at the optimum time and pressed very quickly under sterile conditions in a state-of-the-art olive press. The result is an extremely fine olive oil with very low Free Fatty Acid and Peroxide levels, and very high Polyphenol levels.
'Best in Class' winner at the New York International Olive Oil Competition and 'Gold' winner in Tokyo.
