Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Product of New Zealand
Frantoio Olives – Vegetables & Salads: Brings intensity and depth to mixed greens.
Gently pressed from the Italian varietal frantoio olive, this robust oil is designed for use with meats and pasta.
The quality of an olive oil is largely determined by its acidity levels, the lower the acidity, the better the olive oil. Extra virgin is the highest grade of olive oil, meaning that it is made from the first pressing of the olives with an acidity level of not more than 0.8% and perfect colour, flavour and aroma. All of The Village Press Olive Oil is extra virgin, essentially the ‘juice’ of the olive and it is also all cold pressed. This means that the oil is processed under 35° centigrade to ensure smoothness of texture and depth and purity of taste.
