Near the small town of Vermaaklikheid along the Cape South Coast, the Joubert family has rooted themselves as ground-breaking olive oil and ultra-premium wine producers.
The 2017 Baleia Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Olive Oil 2017 is a fusion of Frantoio, Corantina, FS17 and Leccino olives with distinctive aromas of green tomatoes and artichokes with a lemon freshness.
The taste has a buttery, smooth ending with black pepper hints and a pleasant bitterness reminiscent of the high antioxidant content.
The new packaging elegantly redesigned to create a modern and seamless elegance with flowing 360 degree design complementing the Baleia Wines & Olive Oil brand.
