Slaley Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Olive Oil
Vintage: 2011 | Cultivar:Leccino (oil) & Mission (table olive) | Origin:Stellenbosch
Our own range of premium olive oil is Cold Pressed, Unfiltered Extra Virgin and is made from the farm’s 8-hectares of live groves containing some 3,500 35-year-old trees.
Two different oils are being offered, a blended oil made from Leccino and Mission olives in a 500ml bottle, and a 250ml bottle of pure Leccino olive oil, both unfiltered.
Olive enthusiasts, like wine lovers, have their own vocabulary to describe their favourite. Lindsay Hunting describes the Leccino-Mission blend as peppery and spicy, full of character, while the 100% pure Leccino oil is flat-out uncompromising “best-we-can-do, if –you-can-handle-it”.
