Barnea Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Country / Region: Australia
Intensity: Mild - Medium
Description: The Barnea olive is traditionally seen in Israel where it is a native varietal but is now commonly grown in other regions including the southern hemisphere olive producing countries. It is a sought after varietal for its high yield and the tree’s disease resistant qualities. It typically produces a very pronounced, leafy, green flavour profile. This Australian harvest Barnea is true to the varietal's roots.
Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: This early harvest fragrant Barnea displays notes of green apple peel, green almonds and fresh cut grass. It exhibits medium bitterness and pungency, making it a well-balanced and versatile oil with a clean finish! Produced on the Boort Estate. Great over something as simple as Israeli couscous, vegetable dishes, soups, and salads! Use to make your own hummus, or on its own as a dipping oil with your favourite bread to enjoy its full flavour.
