Joseph First Run Extra Virgin Olive Oil 375ml
The Joseph First Run is the oil from the season's first crop, raw and untamed. These low yield olives, some of them wild, produce brilliant green oil tinged with lime and gold. Powerful green olive aromas are supported by a lifted fruitiness and a long peppery spice. No filtering and early bottling help capture its raw flavour. Bottle on 14th July, this Australian Icon is fresh seasonal produce at it's best. Heralding the start of the new season, the 2020 Joseph First Run Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the first and freshest oil to be released from an outstanding growing season. As the name suggests, this Australian gourmet icon is the very first run of oil from the harvest’s first crop. The oil yield per tonne is very low but the olive fruit characters are at their strongest.
Produced by Joe Grilli of Primo Estate in South Australia, this is a blend of batches of premium extra virgin olive oils. The nose is fruit-driven and has a freshly cut grass herbaceous lift, with unripe banana, almond and green olive fruit flavours, and a peppery finish.
