Silver at Australian International Olive Awards

The 2017 Picual continues to impress the judges, receiving a Silver medal at the recent Australian International Olive Awards.

The Robust Single Cultivar EVOO was described by the judges as “Green tomato, tomato juice and almond aroma. Creamy strawberry notes on the palate. Good astringency with pungent finish. A simple clean oil.”

Silver at 2017 Australian Food Awards

We are excited to have been awarded a Silver Medal at the Australian Food Awards for our Single Cultivar Picual Oil.

The judges commented that the oil had “green olive, fruity aroma with raw potato and herb notes that transfer well to the palate.  Lingering dominant bitterness and late building chill pungency.”

Taralinga Featured on Channel 10

Taralinga Estate was recently featured on Sara’s Australia Unveiled, on Channel Ten.

Sara’s Australia Unveiled is a once-in-a-lifetime journey encompassing tropical jungles with crocodiles, adrenaline adventures, endless red sand roads and rocky mountains and an unimaginable feast of beautiful landscapes and food.

Success at the National Awards

We are excited to announce that we were awarded GOLD for our 2016 Blend and SILVER for our 2016 Picual Olive Oil at the 20th National Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition, held in Adelaide.

This concludes an extremely successful season for Taralinga. We look forward to more success next year!



International Awards for Taralinga

Our 2016 Blend has been awarded a Silver Award at the Sol D’Oro Southern Hemisphere awards held in Melbourne on from 5-9 September 2016.

With competitors from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, these awards are dedicated to extra virgin olive oils produced in countries south of the Equator.

This was the third edition of the international competition organised by Veronafiere dedicated to countries producing olive oil in Spring – the opposite time of year compared to traditional northern hemisphere areas.

Our Picqual Olive Oil also received a Special Mention award.

These results come shortly after two gold medals from the Australian Food Awards.



Two Gold for Taralinga

In only our second year of production, Taralinga Estate Olive Grove has been awarded two Gold Medals at Australia’s leading national premium food awards, the Australian Food Awards (AFA).

Two products were entered in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Pantry Goods\Olive Oil and Table Olives) category, and both were deemed worthy of Gold Medal Status.

The success of the 2016 Taralinga Estate Premium Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the 2016 Taralinga Estate Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil, follows on from the Bronze medal won at last year’s Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards.



2016 Harvest Available NOW

Our Mornington Peninsula olive grove has just completed the 2016 olive harvest and crush.  While unfortunately the olive yield in Victoria is significantly lower this year with many groves achieving only 25% of their 2015 harvest, the fruit quality at Taralinga has been exceptional.

The oil is available to purchase in cartons of a dozen (12 x 500ml bottles) for $264 per carton.

Unfortunately as a result of the limited quantity, this offering is restricted to one carton (12 x 500 ml bottles) per customer.


Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil Certification

Taralinga Estate Olive Oil is pleased to announce we have received our Extra Virgin Olive Oil certification by Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil under the Australian Standard (AS52642011®) for the 2016 harvest.
