Since 1989 Primo Estate winemaker and olive oil blender Joe Grilli has been setting the standard for Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil with his carefully crafted oils. As the name suggests, the small batch of Mount Compass fruit is pressed at low temperatures to capture the olive's most vibrant, intense flavours.
Following a hot summer, the 2020 olive harvest was characterised by a long, cool ripening period. These ideal conditions led to a pristine quality of fruit and gave ample time for olives to ripen steadily. The Mount Compass olives arrived at the press showing powerful aromatics.
