Mount Zero Olives Organic Kalamata Olives 300g
All Mount Zero Olives are hand-picked and brine-cured, using the traditional Greek method of fermentation in water, salt and vinegar. This is a time-consuming process, but it ensures a greater depth of flavour and natural colour. The Kalamata's are medium to large in size and picked black. They are firm in flesh, with a rich olive flavour. Kalamata olives are the classic table olive variety and are also fantastic in salads. Brine curing leaves these olives a dark burgundy colour and ensures the characteristic fruitiness of the Kalamata is preserved.
Wandering through the Grampians National Park in western Victoria you could be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere in rural Tuscany or on the Iberian Plateau. The sun shines bright, the air is dry and fresh and saline, the earth is a baked russet. An olive grove seems only natural. Jane, Neil and Richard Seymour have taken custody of some six thousand olive trees on the Mount Zero farm, and produce Australia’s best olives and olive oil. Their olives are intensely flavoursome with a uniquely Australian bent. From plump juicy Manzanilla to the tiny wild olives, Mount Zero’s olives are second to none.300g
