We're celebrating after winning the Trophy for Best of Show, at the 2016 Australian Food Awards (AFA) for our Maluka Estate Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Picual is a Spanish olive variety renowned for harmony and complexity. Our oils won a total of seven medals, including 3 gold and two silver medals.
We were thrilled to win so many gold medals, but we were absolutely blown away to take out the Trophy for Best Extra Virgin Olive Oil of Show. This achievement really confirms that all the hard work is paying off and our products really are of the highest possible standard.
Double celebrations are in order, with the same 2016 Picual also winning the trophy for Reserve Champion Oil, a gold medal for medium style oil, and a silver medal for single Italian varietal oil at the 2016 National Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition.
Also at the National Competition, we won a further two gold and four silver medals.
The 2016 results build on the success of the 2015 harvest, which won Champion Boutique Oil , along with two gold and two silver medals, at the RASV Fine Food Awards (the predecessor to the Australian Fine Food Awards). The 2015 oils also won trophies at the 2015 National Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition, taking out Australian Reserve Champion Oil, and Victorian Champion Oil, along with two gold and two silver medals.
