Extra Virgin Olive Oil

$29.99

750ml

Our family truly believes that premium olive oil is the result of lovingly tended trees. Geographically and climatically similar to Tuscany, the Waipara Valley is an ideal place for growing olives.

The healthy, concentrated fruit is processed cool to retain its unique properties. The result is some of New Zealand's most flavoursome and complex extra virgin olive oil. Our blend of Tuscan varietals is fruity, herbaceous and spicy. We are proud to have been awarded Canterbury's first-ever Gold Medal.

The cooler climate of the Waipara Valley means olive trees tend to be slower growing and less fruitful, giving greater concentration of flavours.

Olive harvest typically begins in June and lasts approximately four weeks. Oil is extracted from the olives within 24 hours of picking, to give purity and preserve the integrity of the oil.

Here at Terrace Edge, we grow Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino and Minerva olives. All varieties have been chosen for their fresh, peppery and intense characteristics. The rich alluvial soils and cool climate combine on our unique site to produce outstanding olives with distinctive flavour.

Terrace Edge (CHCH)

Terrace Edge Wines in the Waipara Valley is the very essence of a family-owned and operated business. The North Canterbury property was originally a sheep farm, the Chapman family began their land conversion by planting 2000 Olive trees on the lower terrace. With no previous experience, the development of the business was taken on with a real trial and error approach. Pete, the youngest of Bruce and Jill Chapman's three sons believes, "there's a beauty in not knowing how hard things will be sometimes." Pete went on to study Viticulture at Lincoln University, and now manages the day to day operations in the vineyard. The development of Terrace Edge is not unlike the growing of great wine, it requires a real hands-on approach. The whole family is involved with each aspect of the business; Nana mends the nets, which are instrumental in preventing crop damage in the weeks before harvest. Jill is on hand to answer the phone and spends many weekends out in Waipara, pickling olives and ensuring everything is running smoothly. While Bruce, alongside his wife, is around on weekends, sharing wine tastings and the Terrace Edge story with visitors to their piece of Waipara Valley paradise.
