Portuguese Koroneiki (Medium)

$15.00

Crush Date: October 2023

Tasting Notes:

Our first ever Portuguese limited Koroneiki is a small batch production. It displays a creamy mouth feel with some berry notes and pepperiness. 

Our partner producer in Portugal is using a high vacuum during malaxation to remove all of the oxygen in this processing stage where the oil spends the most time and is most prone to oxidation. This cutting edge and very technical method preserves the phenolic content, the overall chemistry plus the flavor characteristics while reducing other oxidation markers.

Product ships in dark glass bottles, clear glass was used in the photo to show color.

Note that reviews may be for prior years' harvest.  Varietals from the same region are very similar year-to-year.
