Pedro Ximenez Barrel Aged Sherry Vinegar
Sweet, savoury, and tangy, our Pedro Ximenez barrel aged sherry vinegar from Jerez, Spain is remarkably complex and delicious. Reminiscent of dehydrated grapes (raisins) and dried fruit like dates and figs, it has a most memorable flavour and aroma. While the sweetness of this vinegar surely comes from the delectable Pedro Ximenez grapes, its dark mahogany colour and intense aroma comes from being aged in American oak casks. This outstanding vinegar is extremely versatile and combines stunningly well with any of our extra virgin olive oils.
Sherry vinegar contains a lot more complexity than your average wine vinegar. It has a crisp, piercing acidity balanced by considerable nuttiness and caramel notes. It brightens and deepens the flavour of foods at the same time. In the winter splash a little sherry vinegar into a pot of beans, marinara sauce, and hearty soups, and in the summer it’s my go-to acid for drizzling over fresh summer produce like snap peas, sliced tomatoes, and leafy salads.
