Extra virgin olive oil Aegean Gold is a filtered, superior category olive oil obtained directly from hand-selected olive blend and solely by mechanical means.
Aegean Gold is produced from selected breed of mountain olive groves, of Plomari Lesvos. It’s a unique blend of three olive varieties: Kolovi, Adramytiani and Latholia.
The Kolovi is an olive variety that grows on Lesvos rocky terrains at an altitude about of 600 meters and doesn’t need much water.
This olive tree has a wide root system which allows to get nutrients from the soil and other plants. As a result, these small green olives transfer to olive oil its saturated taste. Thus olive oil from olives Kolovi has such an intense flavour of wild mountain herbs.
Adramytiani are light brown middle-sized olives with oil content about of 20% growing in the northern and north-eastern parts of Lesvos island. These olives gives to Aegean Gold its light fruity aroma and rich texture.
Latholia, an authentic olive variety from Lesvos, a big dark olive with oil content of 25%, is one of the best olives for olive oil extraction. It has a very gentle, smooth and semi-sweet taste.
All together these three olive kinds create an excellent extra virgin olive oil Aegean Gold with its amazing golden-green bright colour, rich fruity flavour and full-bodied taste.
You can buy this olive oil in cans 1 litre and 5 litres as well as in glass bottles 500 ml. Olive oil in cans is stored better and retains its beneficial properties longer because this packaging protects the oil from light and helps maintain a constant temperature.
Extra virgin olive oil Aegean Gold has been awarded more than 40 distinctions in international fairs and exhibitions in Greece, Italy, The United States, Japan, Great Britain and Switzerland.
Aegean Gold is the best olive oil for salad and fresh vegetables. This natural cold pressed oil is an absolute must for your right and authentic Greek salad. Its mild taste and subtle aroma will not dominate but help to reveal the taste of other ingredients: feta, vegetables and olives.
