EVOO VARIETIES

A variety of four different unique EVOO propositions

ATHINOELIA

The variety of Athinoelia (in Greek translated as “Athena” olive tree) is a historically acclaimed EVOO that has been exclusively cultivated in southern Lakonia, in the municipality of Monemvasia, Peloponnese since the age of Homer (1200 BC). Known as a sacred variety denoting to the Goddess Athena, it is a sporadic and precious variation due to its demanding nature that requires careful care in its agronomy while the fruit is susceptible to high altitudes and strong cold winds. The oil can be distinguished by its characteristic golden-green color and its robust fruitiness with the prevailing notes of citrus fruits and almonds. Its taste is powerfully fresh, harmonious and well balanced with a delicately spicy finish. As it has been praised for its bold aromatic capacity, while boasting a high amount of polyphenols, we suggest that it should be enjoyed raw in its natural state or as an additive at the end of cooking. As such, it is idyllic for salads, cold dishes and spreads. Our produce, once again, is of superb merit with a low acidity of less than 0.3% and represents our best-seller across all of our olive oil selections.

MYRTOLIA

Mirtoelia (Myrtoelia or Mourtoelia, meaning “cranberry olive”) is an ancient, yet not very common, Laconian olive variety recognized for its unique nutritional value. It has been traditionally cultivated within the region of Monemvasia and produces a black, small in size fruit. The olive oil that it yields has a spicy flavor and a sturdy green aroma reminiscent of ‘freshly cut grass’. We find that its herbal essence is ideal for the use in gourmet cooking, fresh fish, intercontinental cuisine and in the preparation of any seafood dish.

KORONEIKI

Koroneïki (translated as the “queen of olives”) is present mainly in the southern Peloponnese. What separates these fruits and oil are (a) its unique process of cultivation and (b) the oil’s deep, bright green color, which offers a bittersweet smooth taste reminiscing of fruits with a predominance in apple. Specifically, these trees are pruned intensively once per annum in order to keep them small. The fruit is relatively small with an average weight of 1.3 grams. Under these structures and with the aim of safeguarding that the oil reaped from this range is superb, quantity hitherto is sacrificed in place of quality. Our produce is of upper value, boasting a delicate scent yet full bodied spicy after-feel and a low acidity which remains steady year-after-year. We find that it is excellent in use in preparing Mediterranean dishes, especially when utilized with the ‘slow cooking’ method.

BLENDED VARIETY

Variety in olive oil as in all things is indeed the spice of life. One of the finest blends in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This custom-built assortment comes from a measured merge of Myrtoelia, Koroneiki and Athinolia variations, generating a perfectly balanced medley. The final produce has an intense golden color and an aromatic whiff evoking of ripe olives. It encompasses a slightly bitter and spicy flavor while leaving a pleasant silky sensation to the oral cavity. This is one of our most popular EVOOs, boasting a full flavor frame and an intense character that is proposed for all manners of cuisine, meal preparation and usage.
