Omaka Springs Winery

"Omaka Springs Estates is a family business owned by Geoff and Robina Jensen located in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough, New Zealand.  In 1990, the Jensens established their first olive grove near Nelson.  In 1992, the olive grove was relocated to a site alongside a newly purchased 40 acre vineyard in the picturesque Omaka Valley.  Omaka is a Maori word which means, 'The place where the stream flows.'  Our 180 acres of vineyards and olive trees benefit from the natural springs that wind through the estate.'" - Winery Notes

Omaka Springs Olive Oil

"Omaka Springs Olive Oil is a delicate blend of several Tuscan olive varieties. Frantoio olives, along with Barnea, Leccino, Manzanillo and other varieties are hand picked when they reach their peak in June/July.

A single cold pressing ensures that only extra olive oil is extracted and blended to produce the distinctive Omaka taste. Our oil is renowned for its delicious fat olive aroma. Its smooth but not greasy on the palate, it has good balance and a subtle grassy creaminess.

The olive oil is bottled and packed at the Estate.

Judy Ridgeway, an olive oil expert and consultant described the Omaka oil as follows:  'I liked the culinary herbs aroma - mint with bay and tarragon - and the well balanced bitterness on the palate.'" - Winery Notes
