Early harvest olive oil (agoureleo) is picked early, when the olives are still unripe, yielding a lot less oil, but an incredibly fresh and long lasting aroma and flavour with very high levels of antioxidants and polyphenols. It is produce for us by Nikos Psaltiras in the high-altitude, terraced olive groves of the Mani peninsula in the Peloponnese, from 100% koroneiki olives. It is pressed in the local olive press and bottled unfiltered. This, our first harvest (November 2020) is in a limited run of just 480 bottles!
It has a fresh and grassy aroma, perfect for finishing, roast veg or fish.
