Barnea Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Harvest: 2019

Country / Region: Australia

Intensity: 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 is a magnificently complex oil that showcases striking notes of fennel and green apple, and has a very clean, peppery finish!  A well-balanced and versatile oil - produced on the Boort Estate. Great over something as simple as Israeli couscous, vegetable dishes, soups, and all salads! Use to make your own hummus, or on its own as a dipping oil with your favourite bread to enjoy its full flavour.
