Don Carlo Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Producer: Morgenster Origin: Stellenbosch, South Africa

This is Morgenster’s single variety extra virgin olive oil, pressed from the relatively new Italian cultivar Don Carlo. Originally cross-pollinated in Perugia, Italy by a professor whose grandfather’s name was Carlo and lovingly referred to as Don Carlo, this cultivar was introduced to South Africa for the first time at the Morgenster estate (they have the sole right to propagate these trees in South Africa). This single variety oil is intensely fruity, but surprisingly harmonious, smooth, and balanced. Grassy with lots of green notes, and a peppery finish.
