An exceptional organic extra virgin olive oil from Lesvos island

εvo3 is an organic extra virgin olive oil of exceptional quality. It has a liquid texture (low glutinosity – smooth taste), due to its relatively high level of unsaturates and a golden light colour, giving it its unique delicate fruitiness, velvety and fragrant taste, with a slight piquant aftertaste. εvo3 benefits from this climate and the surrounding flora (which includes pines, chestnut trees, oaks, and fig trees) which gives it its great taste and unique qualities. εvo3 is a mix between three different types of olives – the Kolovi (Valanolia), the Adramatini, and the Lathoelia. The Kolovi and Adramatiani olives mature slowly and are black in color. They thrive in soil with slate in it. Their flavour has an intricate, fruity taste, and their olive oil colour is golden yellow to a golden green. The Lathoelia thrives in lower altitudes and is bigger in size. Their colour varies from a red-violet black to purple and deep black. Their taste is fleshy and slightly fruity and fragrant. The acidity of the olive oil is also of exceptional quality.  εvo3 free acidity ranges from 0.4-0.6% which allows it to be labelled as extra virgin and categorised as exceptional quality.

The harvest season for εvo3 is between November to January. This is when the olives are at their peak for harvesting, producing the best quality olive oil and the distinct fruity taste. This means that the farming methods used are sustainable, no chemical fertilisers are used, and only organic fertilisers and natural methods are used to eradicate the olive fruit fly, translating into a clean, healthy product to consume. NYIOOC judges state that εvo3 has “aromas of ripe fruit, green grass, tomato and notes of walnut. Its taste exhibits abundant fruitiness, green grass, sweetness, some bitterness, light pungency and notes of hay, with exceptional harmony, a high complexity and a high persistence".
