A BY DEHESA creation:

In order to offer the first balsamic vinegar with no added sugar and no caramelization process, we selected a land and a winemaker capable of offering a naturally "sweet" wine, which has taken the time to age naturally in oak barrels. This is how Pepe, a winegrower for 6 generations in the Cordoba desert, gave us an invaluable treasure! A living memory of the greatest Sherry wines of the region, he is the last to own century-old barrels in which Pedro Ximenez's single-varietal wines and vinegars of 1929 are still stored!

With his help and that of great Spanish oenologists, we have designed this vinegar in limited edition, in the pure tradition of the ageing of the great wines of Sherry, Xerès. Made from grapes from the "albarizas" vineyards, Pepe's vinegar goes through an ancestral and forgotten method of passerillage - drying the bunches in the sun for 24 hours to concentrate the natural sugar contained in the grapes. The maturing process is then based on a strict replication of the ancestral methods of vinification of Sherry wine, known as "Criada" and "Solera", in century-old oak barrels. The acidity level is controlled at less than 6% to recall the sweetness of balsamic vinegars.
