The country of Turkey produces a lot of olive oil from many different varieties, but Ayvalik is the most widely grown. This medium-mild oil is very well made from early harvested fruit. It has a nice floral and fresh herbaceous aroma. The balance of mild bitterness, strong fruitiness, and sharp pungency is just perfect. It also has a good mix of ripe and green fruity flavors that gives it a lot of complexity and full-bodied mouth feel. The ripe flavors are both tropical and citrus. The green flavors are herbs, grass, artichoke, green apple, mint, cinnamon, and black pepper.
