Morgenster in SA Top 10 Olive Awards
published on:

After being awarded a gold medal in the intense category at the SA Olive Awards at the end of August, Morgenster extra virgin olive oil, 2017 harvest, was also recognised as one of South Africa’s top 10 olive oils by the Absa Top 10 competition announced on 27 September.

Two of the Estate’s single cultivar olive oils also received silver medals, Morgenster Monte Marcello in the delicate style category, and Morgenster Don Carlo in the intense category of the SA Olive awards.

87 South African olive oils had entered the SA Olive Awards this year, with 19 gold medals and 34 silver medals being awarded. The Absa Top 10 olive oils were selected from the 19 SA Olive gold seal award winners deemed worthy of the highest accolade in the country. 

The 2017 harvest was the first time that Morgenster’s flagship olive oil was extracted by its new Pieralisi press which features the most advanced technology in the world. It is the first of its kind in South Africa.

Morgenster extra virgin olive oil is a secret blend of at least 14 Italian varieties. Freshly cut grass is the first to tease the nose, followed by secondary aromas of green tomatoes, almonds, artichokes and green apples. In the mouth there is an intense concentration of fruit flavours, with a very clean finish. Bitterness on the roof of the mouth and a peppery burn down the back of the throat confirm the characteristics of an excellent quality oil. It is delicious with salads, over bruschetta, on grilled fish, roast vegetables or stir fries.  It also makes excellent mayonnaise.
