A very good quality extra virgin olive oil offering a particularly good quality – price – weight ratio!
Odysea Greek Kalamata PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from Koroneiki olives grown & pressed in the Kalamata region, an area acclaimed for the production of superior quality olive oil and awarded PDO status.
The Kalamata region located in Peloponnese, the southernmost peninsula of mainland Greece, provides an ideal climate for the cultivation of olives, with mild winters, long hot summers and moderate wind. The name Kalamata refers to the mountainous area in the south of Greece and not the olive variety used for the oil, which is a common misconception.
A robust oil with medium fruitiness and a light to medium pungency. Full-bodied herbaceous flavour that slowly builds in the mouth leaving a pleasant peppery aftertaste. Fresh grassy aroma with notes of citrus and tomatoes on the vine.
Superior category olive oil obtained directly from olives and solely by mechanical means; the olives are harvested with care according to traditional methods and pressed within hours of being picked. Produced with Koroneiki olives & high in Monounsaturated fats. The oil is extracted cold without the use of heat or any chemicals. This method ensures the flavour and all nutritional properties of the Koroneiki olives remain.
