USING THE TABLE
- Score Tasters use the Australian Olive Association’s 20-point sensory scoring system, under which a bronze medal score is 13-14.5, a silver medal is 15-16.5, and gold 17 or higher.
- “Extra virgin” Quality test results for oils without a tick in this column fall outside IOC limits for extra virgin classification. Note: these results are specific to the single batch of oil tested – see How We Test.
- Prices are per litre for comparison, based on what we paid in Sydney supermarkets in February 2010 for the specified bottle size.
(A) Packed in Spain from imported and local olive oil.
(B) Bottled and blended in Italy from local and imported olive oils.
