Due to high pre-order demand and limited supply (drought/heatwave affecting our crop), our 2020 olio nuovo sold out quickly this year.

Our 2020 Signature organic EVOO is now available to order (also first cold pressed, unfiltered, and delicious!) Our other 2020 oils will be released as they are ready and settled (all our oils are unfiltered).  Thank you for your understanding and support. 

Olio nuovo
Each harvest season we bottle Olio Nuovo (new oil) - a special limited release of unfiltered cold pressed organic extra virgin olive oil from the first olives harvested each season, mainly from green olives. Picked, cold pressed, unfiltered and bottled within 24 hours while still cloudy - the flavours are amazingly vibrant and fruity, as fresh as you can get! This medium flavour intensity oil displays complex fruitiness, green herbaceous characters and a peppery finish. Very popular and highly sought after at harvest time. 


2020 harvest information
Olive oil reflects the land and climate (terroir) in which it was grown and each season varies slightly. This season was characterized by a hotter and drier than average Spring leading up to flowering, followed by extreme heatwave at fruit set time (December) which reduced our crop significantly. With the trees carrying less crop, they have put on a lot of fresh growth which means good potential for our 2021 crop. Heat and a little stress over Summer increases the antioxidant content (polyphenols) which gives a peppery finish, as well as concentrating the flavour of the oil, producing our typically low yield of beautiful, thick and fruity organic olive oil.

Enjoy the vibrant flavours while the oil is fresh, drizzle it on everything!

Why is fresh oil cloudy? 
Olive oil this fresh and unfiltered is cloudy due to fine particles of olive flesh suspended in the oil. These are high in antioxidants and contribute to the vibrant flavour of freshly pressed oil. Because this oil is bottled straight from the press the settling process that normally happens in our tanks will occur in your bottle or tin, so expect to find some sediment at the bottom. We recommend using as much oil as possible when it's cloudy! Once settled, it it best to decant the clear oil. 

Packaging
Glass bottles have a pourer insert to control flow, tins have a pull up pouring spout, and casks (bag in box) have a tap. The cask tap provides great drizzling control and is drip free (turn off the tap until you feel a click). Our casks are also BPA free and keep oil fresher for longer by excluding air. Read more about casks and shelf life.

Olio Nuovo 15 lire cask

We inevitably run out of your oil before the olio Nuovo his available so this year purchased it in bulk.
It is such a beautiful, quality product and beats anything available on the shelves of all stores that we have tried. We find the oil we use totally affects the flavour and taste of all cooking and other use so thank you so much for yours. We are grateful to have made this connection with you.
The cask pours freely and easily.
