“ Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty. I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.”
Eliris Tasting Notes 2014 Season
Fresh sparky citrus fruit zest – lemon and kumquat – and strong tomatoes-on the vine. There are also hints of apples, green leaves and a touch of nuts.
Very similar patterns in the mouth with tomatoes coming to the fore. Quite strong bitterness comes in followed by a strong slug of pepper but the fruit tones remain throughout. The pepper fades a little leading to an excellent after taste of spicy tomato juice with green leaves and herbs.
A robust style of oil that is well balanced with good bitterness and strong pepper and fruit.
This first class oil has great complexity with good balance. It is again stunning.
