Olive farming in Crete remains based mainly on small traditional family owned plantations with a central community processor. Strict disciplines ensure that the olives are healthy, picked at the optimum moment, and delivered to the processors at the end of each day’s harvesting. In a good year as much as 95% of Cretan oil adheres to Koreneiki oils which are noted for their fruitiness and their stability, which means that they keep their flavor and freshness a longtime. The Greeks themselves consume more olive oil than any other nation and with this olive oil, you can taste why.
Pairs well with any herb infused Balsamics.
