Leandro Ravetti – Chief Oil Maker

The exceptional results of Cobram Estate’s Ultra Premium First Harvest aren't just the product of the last 12 months – It’s the result of decades of work.

The oil itself is bright lime green with shades of gold that promises intense fresh and herbaceous flavours. The aroma is deliciously complex, with fragrances of freshly mown grass, fresh herbs, citrus zest, and marzipan all combining harmoniously.

And the taste! On the palate the oil is smooth and flavoursome with pleasant bitterness, and with firm spiciness that develops over time. The aftertaste is amazingly clean and balanced, leaving your mouth with reminiscence of fresh green vegetables and tropical fruit.

To make this oil we have selected our finest Hojiblanca, Picual and Coratina trees, picked them extra early whilst the fruit is still green, and gently cold pressed the fresh fruit within 4 hours of picking. The result is a truly great Australian extra virgin olive oil.

Like any fresh produce this Extra Virgin Olive Oil is best used within 4 to 6 weeks of opening the bottle.

Hand Selected Olives

With each season comes different weather patterns. We monitor these variations in weather to determine which olive varieties are selected for use in our First Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

The 2022 olive growing season has shown quite moderate weather conditions that combined with a balanced crop allowed us to develop proportionally big olives with a large amount of flesh and excellent fruity flavours as consequence. To make this oil we have selected our finest Hojiblanca, Picual and Coratina trees, picked them extra early whilst the fruit is just starting to ripe, and gently cold pressed the fresh fruit within 4 hours of picking. The result is a truly great Australian extra virgin olive oil.

Fresher is healthier

Due to the quality and freshness, the health benefits are amplified. Every single olive is packed with health giving antioxidants (many of which are unique to olives) that infuse the olive juice as it is pressed. Oleocanthal, Squalene, Vitamin E and many other complex antioxidants are key to Extra Virgin Olive Oil goodness and they decline over time as they sacrifice themselves to protect the oil from oxidation. Therefore, the fresher the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the better it tastes and the healthier it is.

Enhance your cooking

Our First Harvest 2022 is ideal for seasonings salads of all types; the master touch on grilled vegetables, pasta and fish; or at its simple best, pouring it over freshly toasted bread rubbed with a touch of garlic and sprinkled with salt flakes. Most importantly, use it while it is fresh and ideally use it within 4 to 6 weeks of opening the bottle. We hope you enjoy the 2022 First Harvest as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.
