Our Rustic Gold is made in the famous olive regions south of Iraklion, where olive oilshas been made continuously since Minoan times, using traditional methods, including natural sedimentation. Unlike filtration - which is widely used in modern processing because of its speed - natural sedimentation allows the exra virgin cold pressed oil to settle slowly and naturally. Thus it retains components which add to flavour and health value.
The koroneiki olives used in our Rustic Gold are hand-picked and selected to produce an ideal mix of ripeness - and the result is this very robust, punchy but well-balanced oil, with its green gold colour, distinctive aroma, strong peppery after-taste and tang of bitterness.
Tasting notes - From the best-selling author, Anthony Horowitz
"We all sat down and tried RUSTIC GOLD.
This is a great oil to accompany more delicate and flavoursome foods
as it's very light and subtle. It has a lovely fresh taste , grassy and slightly nutty, and it's much less peppery than many oils I've tried
from Crete. I imagine this would be a perfect, healthy oil for
children almost a starter pack! "
