Twisted Tree is super excited to bring you this Extra Virgin Olive Oil from our home town of Tutukaka, located on the scenic east coast of Northland. This cold pressed blend of varieties, including Leccino and Koroneiki, gives a smooth buttery tasting oil with that classic peppery bite at the end (a sign of high antioxidant and nutritional content). This oil is perfect for a finishing drizzle over salads, pasta and pizza or to accompany fresh baked breads.
The olive grove at Rocky Bay has been cleverly set up by Frank Newman on a pristine hillside which is sheltered from the strong winds, but gives the olives ample afternoon sun reminiscent of olive groves in the Mediterranean. The grove was established in 2006 and has since been expanded with the first commercial pressing in 2016.
