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


2021 harvest information
Olive oil reflects the land and climate (terroir) in which it was grown and each season varies slightly. After a lower crop last year our trees have bounced back and produced an excellent crop which we can't wait to harvest, press and share with you soon! 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.

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, 4L tins have a pull up pouring spout, and casks (bag in box) have a tap. The 2L 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. Our 15L casks and 20L tins both have taps and include a free empty bottle and pourer for easy decanting.

Olio Nuovo

I have been consuming your fantastic Olio Nuovo since moving to Australia 5 years ago. I missed it last year due to the lower availability but luckily I had bough enough casks the previous season. So excited to see your trees are back in full force and you are expecting an abundant harvest as I am about to place my order - can't wait for May to try the new oil!
Thank you so much once again for producing such an extraordinarily precious oil that I basically add to almost everything i eat :)
All the best to you!
