Yioryo Olive Oil, Extra Virgin, Ultra-Premium, Manaki - 750 ml
On the coast of the Northern Peloponnese, the Manaki olive is believed to produce the most premium olive oil. Its aroma, acidity and color have made it the local favorite. Our Ultra-Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made exclusively from this highly esteemed olive and pressed by dawn the day of harvest to ensure an impressively low acidity.
Nature continues to work for us as gravity separates residual sediment from the oil. The powerful grassy aroma makes for a pleasingly unforeseen and delicate flavor profile. Our Manaki Extra Virgin Olive Oil will shine in any dish but performs best drizzled over fresh salad greens, rustic bread, or your favorite fish.
Harvesting: our olives never touch the soil. Using mechanical and hand picking methods, we ensure that our olives never touch the soil. The real insurance however are the “elaiopana”, these are large canvas sheets that are placed below the trees during the harvest to ensure that olives don’t touch the soil.
Pressing: First cold press. We press our olives by dawn the next morning for reasons of quality. Also, to ensure an impressively low acidity.
Filtering: We believe in allowing our olive oil to settle rather than agitating it through a violent filtering process. Filtering will allow you to market the olive oil faster, however it does impact the lifespan, flavor and color of the olive oil. Nature continues to work for us as gravity separates residual sediment from the oil. These sediments are a natural byproduct of unfiltered olive oil.
Storage: we store our olive oil in basements with moderate humidity and temperatures that range from 40-65 degrees. It is imperative that we limit our olive oil’s exposure from hot temperatures as we believe it affects the product’s quality.
