Sanuki Olive fed Wagyu: Intensely and finely marbled, has a complex and delicate flavor. Unsaturated fats melt at room temperature providing a clean, silky textural experience with zero of the “waxy” mouth feel found in common wagyu raised in other regions, kyushu in particular. A slight hint of olive flavor is present but the star of the show is the lineage of this herd which comes through on the palate in a restrained and satisfying way. This is wagyu for grown-ups.

About Sanuki Olive Fed Wagyu From Chef Marc: Sanuki Olive finished wagyu is raised on Shodoshima Island in the Kagawa prefecture. Only four animals are harvested at a time. It is one of the only places where olives are grown in Japan and their unique processes produce an amazingly marbled product, high in unsaturated fat and oleic acid. The animals are fed sun-dressed olive pressings that result in high concentrations of unsaturated, healthy fats.
