Kransfontein Landgoed Coratina Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kransfontein Landgoed once belonged to the renowned writer Wilbur Smith.
Most of his novels were written in his cottage overlooking the Goukou River and flourishing olive trees. The estate’s slopes are all north facing which provides ample sun and moist to grow.
The estate farms biologically and no chemicals are used during the production process.
Olives are 100% natural since no preservatives or artificial ingredients are added.
Olive oils are EVOO, thus extra virgin olive oil where the olives are pressed only once.
Coratina olive trees were imported some decades ago from the Puglia region, popularly known as the heel of Italy. The fruit is medium sized, and egg shaped.
The strong peppery flavour of Coratina olives is attributed to its high polyphenol levels. The olive oil is strong, fruity and peppery and loved by the connoisseur.
The oil is cold extracted and extra virgin.
Available in a 500ml glass bottle or 1 litre tin.
