ELEONES 2012/13 Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil surprises again
The new 2012/13 harvest is over once again for ELEONES. Earlier than any other region in Greece the ELEONES Early Harvest is almost ready for bottling as it is about to complete its “resting period” of eight weeks in the stainless steel tanks.
The olives were milled in late September earlier than any other region in Greece. Once again the ELEONES team managed to produce a difficult to match, in terms of quality, olive oil as the chemical analysis of the ELEONES Early Harvest showed.
With acidity of 0.14% about six times lower than the limit of 0.80% for the extra virgin olive oil.
The K270 at a value of 0.09 when for the extra virgin the limit is 0.22,
The K232 at 1.357 with a limit for the extra virgin at 2.50
The peroxide value at 5.2 meqO2/kg with the limit for extra virgin at 20, about four times lower and
The ΔΚ -0.002 (minus) with the limit for the extra virgin olive oil at 0.01 that is a staggering ten times lower than the limit.
The 2012/13 ELEONES Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil is truly a unique olive oil full of antioxidants as the lucky ones who will have the opportunity to taste it will realize.
ELEONES is proud for the work that its people put in order to introduce the world to unique quality olive products at a very difficult time for Greece.
