TASTING & FLAVOUR

When establishing the Estate, we chose to produce delicate oils that are pleasant on the palate and easily swallowed. Our oils are ‘drinkable’ oils and this makes them popular throughout New Zealand.

Simunovich Olive Estate extra virgin olive oil is classed as ‘delicate’ to ‘medium’ tasting, well balanced with crisp, fresh and fruity, grassy and green apple notes on the tongue, almond notes on the throat and a slight peppery after taste. It has a clean yellow colour with an acidity level of 0.13% and a peroxide value of 4.8.
