National Award Results: 7 October, Hobart, Tasmania
Best in Show!… what a close call!
Dr Richard Gawel in the nail biting lead up to the announcement had noted that the Best in Show has never been so close between 2 producers!
So in the Elite sport of EVOO tasting the triumphant winner with their single varietal of Piqual was Peter & Helen Wright from Grassy Spur Olives who have around 1500 trees and located in the Gippsland region of Victoria.
This season they had their olives processed by, multi-award winning oil producer, Andrew & Lyn Jamieson from Golden Creek Olives (who also was awarded with a Gold for their oil) all processed with their Oliomio machine! What a stellar effort and a label they can proudly wear as ‘the Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Australia for 2013!’
Furthermore, other notable Gold awards in 2013 also processed with Oliomio machines are:
- Camilo Olives with Camilo Farm Blend
- Grassy Spur Olives with two more Golds: Coratina & Frantoio varietals
- Cradle Coast Olives with Cradle Coast Medley
- Lentara Olives with Lentara Olives Correggiola
