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 all-rounder.

Kurunba is one of Olio Bello's first and most popular and awarded olive oils.

In 2019, ‘Kurunba’ again received a Gold Medal at the premium West Australian awards  for its excellence and refreshing fruity green banana and guava aroma.   A combination of our Corregiolo and Boutellian (with a hint of Marioli), the oil received a 2020 Silver Medal at the WA Olive Awards. In 2021, Kurunba (Bouteillan), was awarded a Silver Medal at the WA for an oil sourced from a single grove.

 

2021 - Oil Maker's Notes

In 2021, we think that all our organic, varietal oils are outstanding, but of particular note, is the Kurunba (featuring our French olive cultivar Bouteillan).

Benefitting from the cooler climate, it’s fresh, herbaceous and fruit driven, not overly pungent or overpowering - and has the advantages of a slower fruit ripening, without it being dominated by too much pepper, or excess pungency.

 

AROMA
Fresh grass and apple aromas on the nose

TASTE
A fresh, medium bodied herbaceoius oil with grassy flavours and a peppery finish.

2019 Gold  Medal Judges Comments:

"The top award-winning oils had freshness, vibrancy, were complex and had the distinctive characteristics of a gold medal oil.”
 
FOOD MATCHING
Shell fish, leafy green salads and dressings, grilled aubergine and roast tomato. Celebrate its success with fresh crusty bread, Olio Bello organic olives, dukkah and a glass of local, Margaret River wine.

 

2021 Olive Awards - Judge's Comments:

Judge's comments 2021:

"Green vegetable and apple aromas. Minimal nutty flavour: Strong bitterness followed by pungency."

Award winning Kurunba deserves accolades

Heaven is crunchy bread dipped in Kurunba with a glass of white. Love the flavour of this grassy but not overpowering extra ****** olive oil. Everything tastes better with a splash or three. Also love the ease of ordering and getting this quality product delivered in a short time span from WA to QLD. In a world where increasingly there is so much havoc, this provides health giving properties and sensory delight.

An indulgence worth every penny

Absolutely beautiful with bitter notes and a peppery finish. It is a lot to spend on olive oil but as we consume olive oil every day, “organic” is important to me. Consumer experience could be further enhanced through also receiving a print out with a couple of recipes/ serving suggestions and tips to keep your oil as fresh as possible. All of this is on the website though so it’s probably a good paper saver! I also splurged in some overnight face cream and it is so nice! I can already see a difference in my skin. Can also recommend the olive leaf tea.

Consumable gift

Purchased as a birthday gift along with several other items from OB's marvellous gourmet selection. Faultless customer service, not forgetting speedy delivery to Perth.
