Mount Zero Olive Oil
Mount Zero Olive Oil is one of the finest local oils in Melbourne. The 2018 Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold pressed from Australian grown Frantoio and Manzanilla olives. These classic varieties produce a balanced oil with a herbaceous aroma, subtle almond and walnut notes and a peppery finish. A great all-rounder for liberal lashings on salads, meats and vegetables.
A little history
With a focus on sustainability & a passion for fine ingredients, Mount Zero produce one of the best oils on the market from their grove on the edge of The Grampians National Park in Victoria. The olive grove was planted in the 1940’s and is one of oldest olive groves in Australia.
A total of 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal Olive trees line the base of the Grampians most northern summit – Mount Zero. Biodynamic farming techniques are used and the grove is self-sustaining in its farming practices – feeding the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs and the energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
