Isobel Olives is excited to be offering Koroneiki extra virgin olive oil as a single variety this year. My oils have been sent for certification with olives NZ and later this year will be competing for awards which give a true indication of their value, as they are judged by overseas judges.
The Koroneiki is the ‘Queen’ of olives and produces a high quality, low acid, full bodied olive oil. It’s highly prized for its aromatic, fruity and well-balanced oil, perfect for enjoying in it’s natural state or added at the end of cooking. It’s great for everyday usage.
The Koroneiki olive is about 3000 years old and, as far as we know, originates from Greece. It’s a tiny olive in comparison with other varieties and has an oval, raindrop-like shape. Despite its small size it yields a surprisingly large amount of oil. The tree is low maintenance and has the ability to withstand relatively low temperatures and thrives well in Marlborough.
With a stunning greenish gold hue, our Koroneiki Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil shines, offering a delightful delicate oil. Perfect for those who prefer a mild but full bodied oil. I take pride in creating the purest olive oil from the finest ingredients that nature provides, giving you a true taste of Greece every time.
Olive oil is also full of health promoting nutrients that can positively affect many ailments. So use our Koroneiki Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil like the Greeks do—generously!
