Chaloner Mountain Oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Chaloner’s Gold Award winning Extra Virgin Olive oil is produced with the meticulous attention to detail and quality for which Chaloner is renowned. Grown on the slopes of the Stellenbosch Mountains this boutique oil takes character from the granitic soils aided by biodynamic cultivation.
Chaloner olive oil is made in medium style intensity and has a beautiful balance between the fruit, bitter and pepper. A deep green colour belies the oil which is evidence of the Italian varieties used in this blend. The nose has upfront green olives, nutty and slightly grassy notes. A good structure is evident within the oil and also shows hint of artichoke, pine seeds and slight nuances of unripe tomatoes. On the pallet an excellent balance of fruit and bitter is displayed with good walnut flavours and hints of pine seeds and artichokes. The oil finishes with low astringency, a certain amount of creaminess and fruit on the pallet and a lingering pepperiness in the back of the throat.
