Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mount Zero Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Freshly pressed 2013 new seasons harvest!
Derived of 3 varieties of fruit: Manzanilla, Picual & Coratina. This is a marriage of the three classic qualities of a well balanced olive oil - fruitiness (fresh tomato, nutty & herbacious) from the Picual, bitterness from the Coratina & pungency (peppery bite) from the Manzanilla. Delicious drizzled over fish, vegetables or combined with Mount Zero Red Wine Vinegar in a classic vinaigrette dressing.

Available in 375ml, 2L and 15L.

Mount Zero Demeter Biodynamic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This is the family reserve extra virgin olive oil, derived exclusively from Manzanilla olives with fresh ripe tropical fruit aromas and sweet strawberry-like flavours.  A ripe, mild oil, which is great for dipping bread into, or drizzled over bruschetta or fresh vegetables.

Available in 375ml bottles.

Lemon Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mount Zero Lemon Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced in the Agrumato style of cold pressing halved lemons and olives together. This combines the fruity olive character with the zest of lemon for delectable results. Savour this limited release oil with fish, grilled meats and vegetables.

Available in 375ml and 2L bottles.

Mount Zero Verjus

Verjus is a mild acidulant made from unripe and unfermented grape juice, that is then chilled and filtered so that it doesn't ferment. It is both softer than citrus juice and milder than vinegar. When used in cooking, its' taste and texture produce a lovely balance between sweet fruit flavours and a drying, zingy acidity. 

Verjus makes for a delicious salad dressing when blended with Mount Zero Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It can also be a lovely addition to mayonnaise,  added to rich winter stocks, or used to prepare roast foul. Mount Zero Verjus is made from Chardonay grapes grown in the cool climate wine region of Central Victoria.

Available in 375ml and 750ml bottles.

Mount Zero Red Wine Vinegar

Aged in oak barrels, the Mount Zero Red Wine Vinegar, has a deep berry/plum flavour taken from its main ingredient, wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. We believe red wine vinegar, not balsamic, is the best complement to our oil when making dressings. Mount Zero Red Wine Vinegar adds flavour to soups, stocks and risotto. It is also perfect for lifting flavours when deglazing.

Available in 375ml bottles.

Mount Zero Australian Wild Olives

When much of Western Victoria (the Mount Zero Grove) and parts of South Australia were planted 50 - 100 years ago, it was largely with grafted trees.  Over time, as some groves have been allowed to go "wild" and trees have self sown, the original root stock has grown through producing an olive like no other - small bullet shaped fruit, with intense flavour!  We are now supporting the regrowth of this original root stock and are producing a small amount of these wild (by nature & flavour) olives.  Fantastic as a table olive, for nicoise salads & mixed with almonds & lightly pan heated.

Available in 300g, 2 kg and 7 kg.

Mount Zero Organic Kalamata Olives

Mount Zero Kalamata's are medium/large in size and picked black. They are firm in flesh, with a rich olive flavour. Kalamata olives are the classic table olive variety and are also fantastic in salads. Brine curing leaves these olives a dark burgundy colour and ensures the characteristic fruitiness of the kalamata is preserved.

The Kalamatas we offer are now certified organic.

Available in 300g, 2 kg and 7 kg.

Mount Zero Mixed Olives

A mix of all of Manzanilla, Kalamata, Gordal, Blonde Kalamata and Wild Olives.  The variation in size, shape, colour and flavour within this mix presents beautifully and offers something for everyone.  Fantastic also to marinate & present with cornichons & caper berries.

Mount Zero Ligurian Olives

Mount Zero Ligurian Olives are picked as they are turning from green to black, hence the colour variation. Ligurian olives are small with firm flesh and a sweet, herbaceous, nutty flavour with good acid balance. Typically harvested later than most other varieties, they are full of vitamins, especially vitamin E. This olive is served as a snacking olive, an ingredient to pasta, not dissimilar to the Nicoise Olive, it is great in salads.

Available in 300g jars.

Mount Zero Blonde Kalamata Olives

Blonde Kalamata Olives, as the name suggests, originate from Kalamata in Greece. They are however a distinctly different variety to regular kalamata olives. Blonde Kalamata olives are one of the largest olives available. Due to their size they take longer to cure than most other olives and over this time naturally leech colour from burgundy (when picked) to blonde. Blonde kalamata olives are strong in flavour and texture and are a favourite among our restaurant customers. All of Mount Zero's olives are hand picked and preserved naturally in brine (salt & water).

Available in 2 kg and 7 kg jars.

Arbequina Olives

Mount Zero Manzanilla Olives

Manzanilla olives make up the bulk of the olives grown at Mount Zero and also feature heavily in our oil production.  Manzanilla; meaning small apple in Spanish, is not only a Spanish olive variety but also the name of the some of the finest Spanish sherry. Our Manzanilla Olives are picked black and stand out as one of the few perfectly round olives available.  Manzanilla's are an extremely fleshy olive with a relatively small pip.  They make a great table olive, as well as being very simple to pip and use on pizza, pasta & salads.  All of Mount Zero's olives are hand picked and preserved traditionally in brine.

Available in 2 kg and 7 kg jars.

Demeter Biodynamic Mount Zero Cracked Farro

The wheel of change has not affected one of the first and finest grains grown by our early farmers more than 2000 years ago.  Farro vanished from modern agriculture because of it's protective husk that required more complex dehulling and milling machinery.  Farro is high in fibre, rich in B Complex vitamins, protein, zinc and has a softer gluten that is gentler to the digestive system than wheat.  We stone grind it to crack the bran.

Organic Australian Quinoa

Following a holiday in 2007 to Chile, Bolivia & Peru, Neil & Jane returned very excited about the ‘grain of the gods’ – Quinoa. Given the amazing properties of Quinoa (gluten free, high in protein, low GI and great taste) we thought hard about growing or importing Quinoa. Trial crops of Quinoa at Mount Zero failed and championing imported produce (no matter how good) was deemed not a fit with our principles of sustainability and regionalism.

Our principle (or definition) of regionalism, was happily stretched slightly however, when we discovered that the Damen Family in Northern Tasmania had pioneered the growing of Quinoa in Australia.
