Pendolino Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Description: The Pendolino olive is a native Tuscan variety which has become quite successful in Australia since its first planting there in 1995. Pendolino Olives are usually small to medium-sized and have a 20 to 20% oil content and ripen mid-season. The name Pendolino means pendulum, referring to the way the weeping branches can swing back and forth. The branches of the tree look a bit like weeping willow branches. Pendolino is a good pollinator for other olive trees, but cannot pollinate itself. It tolerates lower temperatures.
Tasting Profile / Serving Suggestions: The Pendolino displays green notes of creamy artichoke, green almond and other vegetal characteristics. It is viscous and peppery with the perfect amount of bitterness. A very versatile oil to use with soups, stews, pasta dishes and as a bread dipper.
