Greek Kalamata “Reserve”


Robust Intensity EVOO
Crush Date: November 2020

Our healthiest EVOO ever! This limited production early Kalamata has savory vegetal notes of arugula, Romaine lettuce leaf and green tea. Unique distinctive flavor and astringency. The combination of picking the fruit at an extremely low green maturity index (early harvest) and minimal processing resulted in the high phenol content and extraordinarily high and healthful Oleocanthal properties (of 292ppm).  We charge a bit more for this but would like to also point out that this (type) oil typically sells for approx. $69 for a 500 ml bottle (@ anywhere between 1,000 -1,300 ppm total NMR phenols, for example) which we feel is an exorbitant amount for the consumer to pay.
