This is sherry vinegar done right. In contrast to a lot of the vinegars generally found on the market that derive from industrial bases like alcohol, this is a pure wine vinegar made in the most traditional of ways. Here's some more information.
Our Denomination of Origin "Vinagre de Jerez" is the first one to be approved for wine vinegar in Spain. It’s about a nutritional condiment with excellent flavour that is elaborated through acetic fermentation of wines produced from grapes in vineyards registered in the Denomination of Origin “Jerez-Xérès-Sherry”.
The unique character of our "CAPIRETE" Sherry Vinegar is due to a serie of factors. The first is undoubtedly its exalted origin: Sherry Wine. Only our wines made from Palomino grapes, grown in vineyards registered in the “Jerez-Xérès- Sherry” Denomination are suitable for use to produce our Sherry Vinegars. In either case, our vinegar’s true qualities are acquired during its ageing, the same ageing process that is used for Sherry Wines; “Criaderas & Soleras”.
The dynamic ageing system provides the ideal conditions in which the acetic bacteria can carry out their long, painstaking work. In each “Criadera”, or nursery, and the via the system of “running the scales”, the product that was formerly wine acquires and increasing acidity, concentration and complexity.
The slow work of the acetic bacteria together with the “Criaderas & Soleras” system bestows to our "CAPIRETE" Sherry Vinegar with its own personality and extraordinary concentration, making it almost an elixir.
The traditional vessel employed for ageing our "CAPIRETE" Sherry Vinegar is the 500 liters American oak Sherry butt which has previously held Sherry Wine. However The Regulations of the Denomination of Origin provide that other oaken or chestnut containers, with a capacity of less than 1.000 liters, can be used.
Sherry Vinegar “CAPIRETE” is characterized by
its distinctive quality as a result of a careful and slow
elaboration. Among the outstanding attributes which
makes this product unique and with no substitute in the
gastronomy world: its mahogany colour, its delicate
smell, its unique taste,... it is due of a prolonged aging
process in American Oak barrels.
