Willow Creek Olive Estate.
Estate Blend Extra Virgin
Olive Oil - 500ml Squeeze.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil Squeeze.
This beautiful olive oil is a blend with Frantoio as the dominant cultivar harvested at a half ripe stage and has a medium fruity character. The aroma of freshly cut green grass and a hint of apple follows through on the palate of this highly popular South African extra virgin olive oil. The slight bitterness and gentle pungency are balanced and fades to leave a pleasant aftertaste.
Foodies will love the Squeeze bottle for its practicality, convenience and eco-friendliness. The unique patented nozzle allows the olive oil to be poured slower than with traditional olive oil spouts which means Willow Creek’s Squeeze allows for greater portion control and goes much further. The unbreakable and recyclable PET bottle with its specially added oxygen barrier and UV filter which keeps the shelf life of the oil intact has already earned the favour of users and judges alike.
It is an excellent all-rounder olive oil recommended for preparing grilled fish, oven roasted chicken and vegetables, homemade mayonnaise and in baking such as muffins and carrot cake.
