Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Padthaway Estate represents the heart and soul of the Padthaway oil district in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia.

The Limestone Coast region, renowned for its distinctive fresh wines, has an ideal mediterranean climate for growing olives. Cool winters and warm to hot summers allow production of Extra Virgin Olive Oil that is uniquely mild and fresh, while also exhibiting a fruit taste with some bitterness and pungency.

Padthaway Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from 100% Frantoio olive variety. Frantoio is the name of the most highly regarded variety of olive used in the famous oils of Tuscany. Frantoio has a fruity, grassy flavour and a distinctive sharp and slightly peppery finish.

The olives are overhead harvested and processed using "state of the art" Alfa Laval milling equipment (imported from Italy ensuring a high quality first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil - under 30ęC) within 12 hours ensuring the freshness and fruit characteristic of the olive and Limestone Coast region is captured in the flavour of the oil.

The first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is then stored in stainless steel tanks with a nitrogen blanket to ensure the flavour is maintained (n.b. stainless steel with nitrogen blanket is used to maintain quality as air and light will cause oil to lose it's flavour).

Padthaway Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil is available in 250ml and 500ml tinted dark green bottles.

Padthaway Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil has won silver and bronze awards in class 2 and 4 of A.O.A. 2004 awards and gold, silver and bronze in the 2004 Olive South Australia awards as well as the Limestone Coast awards.
