    I know the Cobram Classic (purple bottle) won the Choice best olive oil and best quality.

    How does the Robust version (green bottle) compare for quality? They taste the same to me. Taste the same to you?

      We are spoilt with some damn good local produce in this country. The robust as the name suggests has bold olive oil taste notes, I use it mostly for salads and dipping bread. The classic to pour over pasta and other dishes. Each to their own, worthwhile having both handy.

      Robust is supposed to be late harvest, less peppery taste.

    Worth every penny to support locals. Good quality product and love what they do. Have been to some of their farms for work, believe me you’re backing a great operation.

      Thanks tightm8. Is the quality the same between the classic and robust? I have seen lab testing results on the classic (purple bottle) but not on the robust (green bottle)

      I’ve just noticed we can buy from the Cobram estate website, for $8 a bottle. I wonder what their shipping cost is, anybody used them?

    Locally sourced are better because the imported ones have to travel from afar and their quality and nutrients degrade in the process.

      Also is often counterfeit oil

        Obviously you know nothing about oil.

          Maybe more than you think.

            @jv: Then you would know that fresher, the better.

            •  

              @bargainparker: Yet you can't show me that the Cobram is actually fresher…

              Also, if you knew anything about olive oil, you'd know that unless you open the tin, it easily stores for over 12 months without degradation…

                @jv: Google is your friend. So look up olive oil organized crime, counterfeit olive oil, and you'll see what I am talking about.
                If only the only problem was whether Cobram oil is fresher.
                You live in Australia, don't have to prove you it is fresher, go to the shop and check. I stopped buying overseas oil many moons ago.
                I am sure ours is fresher than yours, but since you think it's equally if not more fresh your overseas oil, I'll still be happy to buy our 'old' oil.

                Just be sure that some of this oil didn't end up at your local grocer https://www.forbes.com/sites/ceciliarodriguez/2016/02/10/the...

                  You live in Australia, don't have to prove you it is fresher,

                  Of course you do. You are buying it from Coles. Their 'fresh' fruit is often in cold storage for over a year before it gets sold. I don't even want to begin to guess how long they might store their oil for.

                  Also, food production standards are often higher in the EU. Have you ever bought beer or wine there? Next time you do, look at the ingredients, then compare that to the ingredients in Australia…

                    Facepalm

                    So you know Cobram oil is old by the time it gets to colesworths shelves. Why asking me how fresh it is then?

                    This stuff is for the forum if you want to discuss that.

                    Anyway, me not give ya negatives.

      Sustainability issue to consider as well, another reason why local products are best.

    We boycott Coles full price items

    California Olive Ranch was my favourite abroad, not sure if they sell it here. Definitely worth paying extra for.

    Looking forward to trying Cobram Estate, by the sounds of it, I won't be disappointed.
