Moutere Grove is a certified organic, single estate, producer of fine quality extra virgin olive oil. We have exclusively planted traditional Italian varieties, typical of blended oils from Tuscany. The unique climate and clay soils of the Moutere valley in Nelson add their own character and intensity to the flavours of the oil.
We take all measures to ensure the quality of our product at all stages in the process from growing the olives to the oil reaching the consumer in perfect condition. The olives are pressed within a matter of hours of picking, on the estate, with our dedicated organic press. Our oils have received international recognition for their excellence.
The 2011 oil, which is now available, is complex, with grassy tones, herbs and a hint of tropical fruit on the nose, and a delicious, intense but mellow flavour and a long peppery finish. The free acidity is extremely low, at 0.08% and peroxide value of 3.7mEq/kg. This oil is available in 250ml and 500ml sizes.
