Wollundry Grove Extra Virgin Olive Oil
We’ve now expanded our Wollundry Grove Extra Virgin Olive Oil range to include a few more sizes in the Distinctive range and also added the Delicate flavour!
Wollundry Grove is one of the most significant groves in the Wagga Wagga Region of New South Wales, the plantation dates back 23 years. Bruce and Joo-Yee the current owners normally begin their harvest in April which lasts a few months. They grow five different olives at the grove, each with its own unique flavour. The Olives are processed within 24 hours of being harvested. The oil is then stored in stainless steel vats in an atmosphere-controlled cool room, free from light and air for approximately a month or two for the sediment to settle.
Distinctive EVOO is a blend of early harvest from green to early ripening fruit. It is a stronger or more robust oil that has a strong peppery finish and displays bitterness and pungency. High in anti-oxidants this oil suits tomato-based as a flavour enhancer, pasta, curries or where the chef wants full flavours.
Delicate EVOO is a blend from different olive varieties from both ripe fruit and greener types that displays good aroma, fruitiness with a peppery finish. Apart from salad, it is ideal for that subtle additive to fish and other dishes. Could also be used in cakes and spread on toast as an alternative to margarine or butter.
