The varieties in the Sherwood Springs olive grove are mainly the classics from Tuscany – Frantoio, Leccino and Pendolino. We have also planted Minerva (a variation of Leccino) to enhance our production capacity and give further varietal variation.
The combination of our varieties, soil types, climate and grove management generally produce medium to intense fruity flavour styles which display the true and varied herbaceous characters so appreciated in quality olive oils.
The style and characteristic of our oil is captured by the judges’ comments associated with awards from recent years for Third Pillar. Sherwood Springs Olive Oil will be very simiar. (link to awards page).
