Flavoured Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Petra’s range of Flavoured Extra Virgin Olive Oils include Agrumato and Infused olive oils.
The crisp freshness and incredible flavour of Agrumato olive oil is achieved by crushing the whole citrus fruit with the olives during the pressing process. Traditionally lemons were used at the end of the season to assist in the cleaning of the granite wheels and mats in the ancient olive presses. The practice evolved over time into an annual celebration of the end of the season and the crisp tangy zing of the oil became highly prized for its distinctive taste.
At Petra we use this ancient technique to create our unique Agrumato Lemon and Agrumato Lime Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Our flavoured Infusion Extra Virgin Olive Oils (herb, garlic, chilli and ‘black’) are produced by infusing flavours into the olive oil after it is crushed.
