Greek organic extra virgin olive oil

This superior quality extra virgin olive oil is hand-picked from centuries old amfissa olive groves which has an attractively soft aroma of mixed nuts, walnuts, almonds and pine nuts, with malty tones and a touch of lemons and fresh apples. Cold pressed within 24 hours of being harvested leaving a pure, golden and balanced flavoured oil that makes it suitable for cooking as well as for dressings.

It is a beautiful, ripe, delicate oil which creates flavours in the mouth that are equally nutty with some stalky hay and light milk chocolate. Gentle bitterness and pepper are well matched with the milky fruitiness all of which linger into the attractive after taste of sweet almond biscuits.

This long kept secret from the lands of myth and legends is a delicate style of oil with nicely balanced but low levels of bitterness and piquancy which is not only a flavoursome addition to any meal, it also brings numerous health benefits and is an essential part of any Mediterranean diet

Description

Greek organic extra virgin olive oil 

Pteleos is the source of the Pi Olive Oil Company olive oil and why it’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil has such a fantastic clear distinct flavour while retailing all the trace elements that give this oil its health properties.

Farmed and harvested by traditional methods, the olives are cold pressed, that is, the oil is extracted from the Olive purely by pressure, without the use of high temperature or chemicals. In the same way it has been done for thousands of years. Pressed within hours of picking, the oil is allowed to settle for a month, then the high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil is siphoned off, not filtered, so that the Oil retains all its natural goodness and original taste. This means all of the oil is pure, no additives or mixed with other oils and can be traced back to its original olive grove from around the village of Pteleos

    After years of living in Italy I’m a very fussy person to please when buying olive oil. This is the best I have ever purchased. It has a mellow and buttery flavour but is light and ideal for pastas and salads. It does not leave that often “claggy” after taste behind and has a slightly nutty flavour but so mild. The texture and colour are perfect and just gorgeous for ,dipping bread and pitta in on its own.

    There are many olive oils on the market and it’s true you get what you pay for. This one is worth every penny and I could not recommend it more highly. A wonderful,gift for food loving friends .
