Morgenster is an estate bottled and produced extra virgin olive oil from Stellenbosch, South Africa. Located in the heart of the rich, wine growing region, the Morgenster Estate's award winning oil contains no additives or preservatives and is neither filtered nor refined. Made with a blend of 14 Italian varieties of olives, this oil imparts flavors of artichokes, green apples, and almonds and is followed by a long, peppery finish. It is the first South African oil to receive the prestigious L'Orciolo d'Oro Award and also scored an amazing 97 points in both the 2010 and 2011 editions of Flos Olei. (The L'Orciolo d'Oro Award was started as a competition to judge the best Italian produced oils and was opened up to international oils in 1999.)
Morgenster is the only extra virgin olive oil from South Africa - the origin and terroir that produces some of the world's greatest wines. Located in the Stellenbosch region, the epicenter of South African wine production, Morgenster has the advantage of working closely with wine experts and horticulturalists, as is the case with so many of the world's greatest oils. This allows them to expertly care for their trees, to produce the finest oil on harvest day. Drizzle this fabulous oil over beans, couscous, fish, or grilled vegetables.
