Kurunba Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Named 'Kurunba' (Spirit of the Land)' to reflect the uniqueness of Olio Bello's breathtaking location, richness of earth and passion of purpose - Kurunba is a medium to fruity style oil and a great olive oil all-rounder.
Kurunba is one of Olio Bello's first and most awarded olive oils, consistently delivering year on year - with its unique and carefully crafted blend of the finest olives, from Olio Bello's certified organic farm.
Each year, the variety of olive and style, may vary slightly to reflect the season and the oil maker's unique blending technique.
For example in 2019, ‘Kurunba’ received a Gold Medal at the premium West Australian Awards for its excellence and refreshing fruity green banana and guava aroma. A combination of Corregiolo and Boutellian (with a hint of Marioli). It then received a Silver Medal in 2020 and in 2021, Kurunba (Bouteillan), was awarded another Silver Medal. In 2022, Kurunba won a Bronze Medal and featured the French varietal Bouteillan (with Frantoio and Corregiola).
In 2023- Kurunba has been awarded another Bronze Medal for an oil sourced from a single grove and showcases the Corregiolo cultivar. This makes it a light to medium blend and a consistent Olio Bello favourite.
Fresh grass and herbal aromas on the nose, with hints of fruitiness and spice.
