Early harvest olive oil is a quality above all extra virgin olive oils. Harvesting olives at an early stage of maturity captures their full taste and fruity flavours. Early harvest olive oil has better organoleptic and nutritious properties so remains extra virgin for longer.
Acidity is a direct measure of its quality and reflects the degree of breakdown of the triacylglycerols to free fatty acids. Low acidity of 0,1% - 0,4% is achieved through careful handling and production process.
Olive oil keeps all of its valuable ingredients and aroma. We use gravity as a natural filter which gives time for the microscopic particles of the olive flesh to settle down. (Filtering the oil may remove up to 5% of its flavour and nutritional healthy components).
Cold pressed refers to olive oil obtained by mechanical pressing and extraction processes. Elaion keeps temperatures under 27oC during malaxation and extraction with constant monitoring with laser meter during all stages of production to ensure a steady temperature.
Recognising a good quality olive oil is not just for experts. Opening the bottle should free a pleasant fruity smell of freshly mown grass and of countryside after raindrop. When you taste it you should feel a slight and very soft peppery sensation while your full experience should leave you with a lasting flavour of fresh green olives.
