Voted one of the best extra virgin olive oils in the world 4 years in a row in the Flos Olei guide, Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a well-balanced blend of several Italian cultivars (Frantoio, Coratina, Nocellara, Peranzana, Don Carlo, Leccino) which are grown in Southern South Africa and are renowned for the excellent oil they produce, each contributing specific characteristic to the final product. This award-winning oil has an intense aroma of freshly cut grass followed by aromas of green tomato, almond and artichoke with a hint of green apple and a peppery finish. This oil makes a fabulous salad dressing all on its own, or use it to drizzle over toasted Bruschetta, grilled fish, roast vegetables or stir fries and makes excellent mayonnaise. Morgenster is a proud member of SAOLIVE (South African Olive Oil Industry Association), which has some of the strictest guidelines for olive oil in the world, assuring the consumer that the oil is unadulterated and of the highest quality.
