Kalamata – Australia


Robust Intensity – Crush Date: May 2023

This limited production early Kalamata has intense pepper on the finish with a wasabi like pungency and notes of apple, savory herb, creamy artichoke and almond. The combination of picking the fruit extremely early and minimal processing resulted in high phenol content and a very high Oleocanthal content (147ppm), indicative of the peppery sensation found in very early Kalamata fruit!
