Cold extracted extra virgin olive oil from the Bot River Valley
R80.00 – R190.00
The region between the Bot River and the Houw Hoek Mountains has its own unique terroir (a term borrowed from the French winemakers), the local soil and weather conditions impart specific characteristics on the flavour of the oil.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil made from the five cultivars grown at Waterliliefontein – Mission, Manzanilla, Nochelara and Ogliarola. The olives are carefully hand-picked and taken to a nearby olive mill to be extracted. The oil is then allowed to settle in air-tight stainless steel tanks and finally, it is bottled and delivered. The final product is a smooth, golden oil, with hints of freshly cut grass and a tantalizing peppery finish.
