Sapphire Olives Blend

By Olives New Zealand Inc

Sapphire Olives is a boutique grove of fewer than 1,000 trees located in the Bay of Plenty, North Island of New Zealand. Grove owners Derek and Tracy Johnson have won Gold and a Best in Class at the New Zealand Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards. Their 2020 Grove Blend includes Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino olives. The judges said it has a complex nose of coffee and caramel, with subtle notes of cinnamon and ripe banana. It transfers well to the palate and is overall a well-balanced oil.
