Totara Tunnel Frantoio

By Olives New Zealand

Totara Tunnel is a boutique grove of around 550 trees located on the Kāpiti Coast and owned by Brent Meldrum and Sally Murrey. It is one of the few olive groves in New Zealand following organic practices. Their Frantoio won Best in Class and Reserve Best Boutique in the 2021 New Zealand Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards. The judges said "A delightful balanced oil. With black pepper and grassy notes on the nose with a pleasant medium intensity lingering (chilli) finish on the palate."
