Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Australian Manzanilla Cultivar
Originally from Israel, this cultivar is now widely planted in Australia. The fruit are apple shaped, light green color and spotted with tiny whitish dots. They mature to a black color with a hint of purple and are medium sized, 4.8g. Stylistically, the Manzanillo can vary a great deal. This one falls into the Robust category. Use it in soups, stews, roasted meats, and as a finishing oil to add flavor and depth to any dish. We pair it up with our Lambrusco over a salad prepared with watercress, arugula, goat & bleu cheese, strawberries, toasted walnuts and a few crushed parmesan crackers on top – delicious!
Flavor Profile: Complex artichoke savory nose, tomato leaf flavor with complementary bitterness and lingering pepperiness. Robust Intensity.
