Agora Extra Virgin Olive Oil
AGORA--Indigenous to the Greek island of Crete, Koroneiki olive trees are grown under the watchful eyes of the farmers’ cooperative in Kritsa. The koroneikiolive is considered the “queen of olives” in Greece and is recognized world-wide as one of the preferred olives for oil production. These hearty trees have produced the extraordinary heritage Greek olives, prized for the grassy fresh aroma and delicate taste, for over 3000 years. The ‘grassy’ freshness is the defining signature of agora, making it the ideal component with one of vomFASS’ fruited vinegars for delicious and well-balanced vinaigrette. In addition to refining fish or making salad dressings, this light, cholesterol-free oil adds a nice finishing touch to pasta, a delicious crowning over fish and lamb and in fruity salad dressings.
The tiny Koroneiki comes into production early in the season and sets heavy crops. The olives are very small but of excellent quality for oil. To make Agora, olives are pressed when young and the chlorophyll content is high. This correlates to the bright yellow-green color oil. The high polyphenol content provides excellent health benefits and shelf life. vomFASS Agora Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a world class extra virgin olive oil and has received both Gold and Silver medals from the DLG (German agriculture society).
