Aldea Blanca Organic Sherry Vinegar Albea Blanca organic balsamic sherry vinegar is a vibrant reserve vinegar aged in oak barrels for more than 2 years before it is released, resulting in one of the purest, most complexly flavored artisanal organic balsamic sherry vinegars. Organic Airén white grape variety is carefully grown and harvested at the end of autumn, on their optimum ripeness moment, with the right concentration of sugars and acidity. Its juice is used in this artisanal balsamic production, boiling down to more than half its volume, creating organic concentrated must, which then is blend with aged Reserva Sherry vinegar, of Palomino grape variety. Afterwards, the mixture is aged in sanitary inspected and organic licensed facilities by the traditional Spanish Solera System, in successive oak casks. It is named for the Latin word for “balm” referring to the smooth, mellow character of this type of vinegar.
No artificial or chemical fertilizers are used in any step of the fermentation process; contains naturally occurring sulfites. The final product is nonalcoholic.
With a sweet and acid flavor that lingers on the palate (not sugars added) the tasting notes of this luscious organic balsamic sherry vinegar contain the flavors of the wood it matured in. A bold complex sweetness, piquant yet smooth. A lasting flavor of hints of fig, molasses, cinnamon, and wild cherry.
It has a beautiful bright dark-brown caramel color.
