Olive-oil trails

Geržinić

Details:

Quality: Very good


Another brilliant result for this farm situated in Vižinada, a charming village in the Istrian inland. It is a quite recent oil farm, founded in 2000 by Mirijana Geržinić and today run by Marko Geržinić. There are 3 hectares of olive grove, operated according to organic farming principles, with 700 trees. In the last harvest 100 quintals of olives were produced, which yielded 12 hectolitres of extra virgin olive oil. We recommend the excellent Extra Virgin Geržinić from Organic Farming, which is an intense limpid golden yellow colour with light green hues. Its aroma is fine and rotund, rich in hints of freshly mown grass, artichoke and chicory. Its taste is full and complex, with a distinct fragrant flavour of mint and basil, together with notes of thistle, lettuce and a definite note of almond and black pepper. Bitterness is definite and pungency is present. It would be ideal on lentil appetizers, grilled porcini mushrooms, tomatoes au gratin, pan-seared radicchio, minestrone with vegetables, pasta with meat sauce, grilled lamb, barbecued pork, hard mature cheese.
