GOLD AWARD WINNING GREEK OLIVE OIL
Highly prized for its fine flavor, olive oil has been widely used particularly in the Mediteranean since the earliest historical times.
In Greek mythology, the olive tree was the symbol of Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom. According to legend, when Athens, the most famous ancient Greek Cities, was being built, Poseidon and Athena competed for patronage of the city which was to be granted to the one presenting the most useful gift. Poseidon gave the horse, but Athena planted the olive tree, whereupon the city was awarded to her and named Athens.
Athena is one of the finest and aromatic olive oils produced. It has an acidity rating that is extremely low, between 0 and 0,8%, a quality that can be matched by very few olive oils.
One of the finest and aromatic olive oils in production, Athena XV Olive Oil is bottled in the Kolymvari Region of Crete. The koroneiki variety of the olive fruit is harvested by hand and pressed on the same day, in one of the most modern olive oil facilities in Europe.
Athena boasts an extremely low acidity rating, between 0-0.8%, a quality that, no doubt, led to a string of Gold Awards from the NYIOOC, in several categories including Best In: Northern Hemisphere, Non-Organic, Monovarietal, & Medium.
Here’s what the NYIOOC Judges thought:
“Aromas of green fruit, green grass, banana, and notes of artichoke. Taste exhibits abundant fruitiness, green grass, sweetness, bitterness, medium pungency, and notes of banana, with exceptional harmony, a high complexity, and a high persistence”
