Robinsons Bay Olive Oil
Robinsons Bay Olive Oil-New Zealand's best oil. The olives were planted in 1994, and make up one of the most southerly olive groves in the world. Our unique climate, clear atmosphere, and the rich Banks Peninsula soil ensure that Robinsons Bay Olive Oil (and New Zealand olive oil in general) is some of the finest in the world. We have seven different varieties of olive trees in our grove. From Tuscany there are the peppery and green Frantoio and Leccino varieties. From the dry hills of Israel we have Barnea and Souri as well as Nabali from Palestine, Manzanillo from Spain and Verdale from South Australia.
Each variety has its own unique character and flavour, and a delicate blending operation is required to ensure our blended olive oil has a perfect balance and taste.
