Our premium Red Label first pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a vivid iridescent green, indicative of the cool-climate growing conditions, early harvest and the freshness of the olives that leads to this distinctive green colour.
Its nose is sweet, fruity, fresh and complex – with hints of fresh mown grass and apples that is typical of the predominant varietal we use. With a crushed-velvet mouth feel, it has a complex, clean, fresh fruity flavour profile right across the palate. Every year we create a balanced oil – balancing fruit, bitterness and mild chilli-like pungency that leaves a tingle on the lips and a flavour that lingers in the throat and mouth.
These distinguishing sensory characteristics are achieved by:
The Tasmanian climate
Ashbolt farm is located in central Southern Tasmania, in one of the coolest micro climates of Tasmania. The unusual combination of cooler temperatures in winter and longer sunlight hours in summer is enhanced by access to some of the cleanest water and freshest air in the world.
Our Farm Practices
We enrich the soil with organic fertilisers and minerals and implement advanced micro management techniques throughout the growing, harvest and processing of the olives.
Grove orientation, soil type and typography, the rainfall, and microclimate – all these add up to an environment which provides distinctive and unique flavoursome products.
100% natural. 100% Tasmanian.
