Coratina 2016

Portion 36 is one of the few orchards producing a pure Coratina. Despite classified as a medium oil, most are surprised by the pungency and bitterness of this oil. Freshly cut grass, nettles , olive leaves and black pepper are prominent fruity notes. We recommend Coratina for red meat, robust fish and bread.

375ml. R85 - 1l R170

Delicata 2016

A medium and well balanced oil with beautiful tones of green tomato and artichoke. Bitterness and pepperiness in perfect harmony with the fruit. We find Delicata perfect for salad dressings using lemon juice instead of balsamic. It is also good for bruchetta and baked vegetables.

375ml. R85 - 1l R170

Estate Blend 2016

Portion 36 Estate Blend is made up from our different oils depending on their characteristics from year to year. The 2016 blend is a well balanced robust oil with tones of artichoke, green tomato and rhubarb. We recommend Estate Blend for salad dressings, drizzling on baked potato, in pesto and for dipping bread.

375ml. R85 - 1l R170

Favolosa 2016

Favolosa is our most fruity oil, big and well balanced with rich tones of grass, apples, tomatoes and bitter almond. The peppery finish makes a perfect rounding to the rich fruits on your palate. This is our number one pasta olive oil, try it with just some parmesan and salad. No other sauce needed. Also rich for bread dipping.

375ml. R85 - 1l R170

Frantoio 2016

The famous Italian cultivar makes a balanced robust oil, with a slightly elevated pepperiness. Characterised by tones of fresh olive leaves, pine seeds and green apple. We recommend Frantoio for tapenade and dipping sourdough bread. We also recommend Frantoio for marinades for chicken and white fish.

375ml. R85 - 1l R170

Leccino 2016

2016 Leccino is our most delicate and soft olive oil. Grassy with gentle hints of bitterness and pepperiness. Its fruitiness is dominated by tones of almond and walnut. We recommend Leccino for mild cheeses, avocado and tomato salads. And why not try it on ice cream with some roasted nuts!

375ml. R85 - 1l R170
