Aged Vinegar from Assyrtiko – Gaia Wines
250 ml bottles
This YEAR AGED ASSYRTIKO VINEGAR brings together the traditional French recipe from Orleans and Italy’s Aceto Balsamico.
Assyrtiko’s must, not selected for THALASSITIS, is separated into two equal parts that each one follows different courses. One part first becomes a dry wine which then is oxidized in 500lt oak casks, according to Orleans tradition. The resulting vinegar ages in old oak barrels of 225lt for 4 years. The second part of the must is simmered over a low flame in copper cauldrons and reduced till it is thick, aromatic and a quarter of its initial volume. After 4 years the two parts are blended and the resulting sweet vinegar matures for 1 year in old 500lt oak barrels.
This unique, sweet AGED ASSYRTIKO VINEGAR with a complex aromatic profile is bottled in elegant 250ml bottles without further procedures or filtering. Each crop only yields only 5,000 bottles! Enjoy it in frugal quantities.
