Cepa Vieja Sherry Vinegar

Producer: Vinagres de Yema Origin: Jerez, Spain

The depth and complexity of this vinegar is a result of the time honored tradition of utilizing the solera method of aging. The process begins with the harvest of Palomino grapes grown near Jerez, Spain, and a series of barrels called criaderas. Each criadera contains vinegars with similar flavor characteristics but have been aged for different lengths of time. When the solera–the barrel with the oldest vinegar–is tapped for bottling, it is never fully drained. Instead, the remaining vinegar is then blended with vinegar from the next younger criadera, and so on through the series of bottles until the youngest is topped off with fermented must.
