This 5-YEAR AGED ASSYRTIKO VINEGAR brings together the traditional French recipe from Orleans and Italy’s Aceto Balsamico.The Santorini Assyrtiko grape undergoes two processes in the making of this fine balsamic vinegar: one group is selected to be made into a dry white wine which then is oxidized in 500lt oak casks, according to Orleans tradition. The resulting vinegar ages in old oak barrels of 225lt for 4 years. The second part of the must is simmered over a low flame in copper cauldrons and reduced till it is thick, aromatic and a quarter of its initial volume. After 4 years the two parts are blended and the resulting sweet vinegar matures for 1 year in old 500lt oak barrels.
This unique, sweet AGED ASSYRTIKO VINEGAR with a complex aromatic profile is bottled in elegant 250ml or 750ml bottles without further procedures or filtering. Enjoy this rare commodity whilst stocks last!
