About Olive Oil

There are many styles of fresh Western Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and they can vary according to olive variety, where the olives are grown, how they are processed and stage of ripeness when picked.

Some oils are robust while others can be medium or delicate in aroma and flavour. Generally, harvest timing has a significant impact on oil flavour. Olive oil from early picked olives is usually robust in flavour, that is, bitter on the tongue and peppery when swallowed. Oil from late picked olives is usually quite soft in flavour, delicate.
