Straniero Olive Oil
Straniero olive grove was established in 1998 in the central west of NSW, 10km north of Canowindra in the Cabonne Shire. The grove of 4ha is planted in a rich alluvial soil type. The area enjoys a mediterranean climate ideal for growing olives. The oil is pressed using a cold extraction process.
The olive varieties are Correggiola, Frantoio and Manzanillo.
Straniero EVOO is best described as having a fresh fruity aroma and a herbaceous/grassy palate with a peppery zesty finish. This will vary in intensity from season to season.
Our aim is to produce a well balanced oil to be enjoyed and used liberally. Straniero is best suited for dipping, drizzling, brushing on meats and vegetables before grilling and incorporating in dressings, marinades and sauces. It will enhance flavours whenever it is used.
