We have all our oil resting here in stainless steel awaiting blending and testing for certification. With olives it's best to press as soon as you can after harvest, the recommendation is within 12 hours. With Steve moving the press to just next door we had fruit from tree and through press in under two hours, fantastic!
Did you know?
Oil testing for certification includes a sensory panel evaluation. Here they look for positive attributes including: fruity, green, citrus, spicy, fragrant, tropical, soft, over-ripe, bitter and pungent; these are determined by the quality of fruit produced on the tree. Here to faults are identified and if found the oil will not gain certification, faults include: fusty, musty, muddy, winey, metallic, rancid, burnt and others. All these faults come back to human error. Always look for certification when choosing your Extra Virgin Olive Oil!
