* Novello, or Nuovo, is just-crushed, unfiltered oil in it’s raw state before it matures and settles in tanks over the winter months to become the olive oil with which we’re all familiar. It’s an untamed, frisky young thing with a distinctive pungency, vitality and fruity quality that should be used lavishly and within three months of pressing. It’s hard to find, but if you can it’s a real treat, something they understand in Italy where the annual tasting of the oil taken immediately off the first press is a great ritual for food lovers.
This limited run of Novello from Nolans Road comes from certified organic trees and is hand-picked right at the beginning of the upcoming harvest season in South Australia. Dee has chosen two Italian varieties for our Novello – Frantoio and Leccino – and we’re all waiting with baited breath to hear how it goes. As with wine, the weather during the growing season dictates the flavour profile of olive oil so the first pressing of the year’s olives is always eagerly anticipated. As soon as they’re picked, the olives will be taken straight to the olive press and the brand new oil despatched to Sydney for the dinner.
