This early harvest Kalamata is sweet and fragrant with notes of rose petal, artichoke, and a creamy mouth feel followed by a wallop of pepperiness consistent with high Oleocanthal content. The combination of picking the fruit early, at an extremely low green maturity index, and minimal processing has resulted in high phenol content but more significantly: extraordinarily high and healthful amounts of the antioxidant.
