Vinagre Pemartin Reserva from Diez Merito
Spanish gourmet wine vinegar
“Vinagre de Jerez” is a Spanish gourmet wine vinegar made from the sherry.
It is made in the Sherry Triangle, which is the area between the three cities of Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maríai in the province of Cadiz in Andalusia.
Vinagre means sour wine.
And that's exactly what wine vinegar is: it's the result you stand for after acetic acid bacteria have converted the wine's alcohol into acetic acid.
"Vinagre de Jerez" is Spain's answer to the Italians' "Aceto Balsamico".
In order to obtain the protected designation of origin "DOP Vinagre de Jerez", the sherry vinegar must have been stored in American oak barrels for a certain period, come from the Sherry triangle, and have an acid content of at least 7%.
A sherry vinegar with the designation a “Crianza” (plain) has been stored in wooden barrels for at least 6 months, a “Reserva” for at least 2 years and a “Gran Reserva” for at least 10 years.
Pemartin Vinagre de Jerez Reserva DOP has aged for at least 2 years according to the Solera method.
It has a nice mahogany color and a good fruit aroma.
A wonderful wine vinegar for your food.
