The Ayvalik varietal is the most widely grown in Turkey. This oil is fantastic, complex, with great depth of flavor. It has a wonderful anise-like herbal aroma along with fresh-cut-grass, green banana, mint, cinnamon and black pepper flavors. It is very floral with ripe flavors of tropical fruit and nuts. The balance between fruitiness, bitterness and pungency is perfect. It is wonderfully balanced with a freshness that sings.
This mild EVOO is perfect for salad dressing, drizzled over fresh fruit, avocado toast, or ice cream, and used for dipping bread with one of our spice blends.
