Sherry Wine Vinegar
Imported from Jerez, Spain, this Sherry Vinegar is made in the traditional Solera system. Aged 25 years to produce a flavor that can only come from a cask-aging process. The Solera process is aging of liquids like wine, beer, vinegar and sherry. A succession of wooden barrels are filled with product and aged for a specific length of time. At the end of that time, the oldest container is tapped and bottled. Then the oldest barrel is filled again from the next-oldest container, and the next-oldest barrel is filled with a slightly younger barrel and so on. This is the same process that the Italians use for balsamic vinegar. The superb vinegar is the Spanish version.
NOTES: This vinegar is assertive, yet smooth with its intensely true sherry flavor of strength and depth.
TWIST: Pairs with Hojiblanca, Persian Lime or Herbs de Provence for a salad dressing. It enhances the flavor of tomatoes, and by adding to any dish you add a hint of a sharp note. Excellent choice for deglazing pans. Pairs well with duck, beef or wild game.
