L’Ormarins Extra Virgin Olive Oil
An Estate produced boutique Extra Virgin Olive Oil packaged in an Italian style dark green glass bottle, with cork closure and tamper seal.
The olive grove is situated on L’Ormarins Estate, Franschhoek. The three native Italian olive oil varieties are interplanted on a steep North facing slope, with weathered granite soils.
Harvest takes place between April and June every year. The olives are handpicked, in stages for optimal ripeness. Each batch of olives is then sent to a local olive oil presser in Franschhoek for pressing. Blending & bottling is done once the full harvest is complete and all the oil has been pressed.
L’Ormarins Extra Virgin Olive oil is produced in Franschhoek on L’Ormarins Estate in a small olive grove up on the granite rich soils of the Groot Drakenstein mountain range.
The varietals used are a blend of Frantoio, Leccino & Corantina
A well balanced, fresh intense extra virgin olive oil, with strong fruit on the nose eminating green olive, fresh cut grass, olive leaf and artichoke aromas.
