Dr. Rosemary Stanton (Herald Sun - Food & Nutrition, June 14 2015) states, "extra virgin olive oil is far and away the best oil - they don't come any better."  Read More

 

What's in our Oil

 


Bottle 2016 1

 

 

The two major varieties of olive trees planted in the Hillcrest grove are the traditional Tuscan cultivars, Frantoio and Leccino. These trees produce fruit of medium oil content and outstanding character. Our trees have been selected because of their oil quality rather than oil quantity. The oil derived from the olive varieties in our grove is carefully blended to produce aromatic and medium intensity extra virgin oil. In recent years the Hillcrest blend has received excellent reviews and awards. It is regarded as premium extra virgin oil.

Hillcrest 2018 75% Frantoio 25% Leccino

Intense fresh aromas of box hedge with floral hints and white pepper like spiciness. The palate displayed moderate levels of riper characters than the nose suggested with more stone-fruit flavours. More herbaceous almost minty flavours followed. Medium levels of bitterness throughout and a strong pepper like pungency on the finish. While moderate in most characteristics, there is a lot going on in this oil.
