In a nutshell: A brilliant example of a Spanish Pedro Ximenez Vinegar, from Jerez using the traditional "criaderas y soleras' system of ageing to produce an intense sweet and fresh flavoured Balsamic-style vinegar.
Using organic white Pedro Ximenez grapes grown in Montilla-Moriles in the Cordoba region that are sun-dried to intensify their natural flavour and sweetness, this Pedro Ximenez (PX) vinegar is then acetified in old Madeira barrels for up to six months. Afterwards, the vinegar is transported to Jerez for further ageing in American oak barrels for 4 years with the traditional method of “criaderas y soleras” used to make sherry where a flor (or yeast) forms on the top of the liquid of each barrel. This helps to prevent oxidisation and aids in the creation of an intense balsamic-style vinegar without added sugar. The vinegar is then bottled directly from the barrels. The resultant vinegar is a wonderful dark mahoghany colour, fruity with all the sweetness and aroma of Pedro Ximenez raisins. With an intense honeyed and nutty flavour with hints of caramel , figs and prunes and a perfect balance of freshness and acidity. Use this vinegar as you would a Balsamic, drizzled over salads, raw vegetables, cold soups, game dishes and sprinkled over grilled meats.
