The raspberry balsamic vinegar in the FINEST FOOD AGE BALSAMIC COLLECTION is made from a small number of pure, natural ingredients: wine vinegar, grape must, honey and raspberries. What makes this balsamic vinegar a culinary work of art is the immaculate quality of the products used and the passion and know-how of the vinegar-makers in a small, young business in Germany.
It all starts with first-class grapes – they are the source of the grape must and the wine for the wine vinegar. Grape must is freshly pressed grape juice; it contains the natural sweetness of the grapes. To make the wine vinegar, the alcohol in the wine in converted into vinegar through acetic fermentation. Producing a high-quality vinegar by this method takes time and skill – it is important to get the fermentation temperature right and to know how to balance the levels of acid, alcohol and oxygen in the vinegar.
For the balsamic vinegar in the FINEST FOOD AGE BALSAMIC COLLECTION the wine is aged in oak barrels for several months, resulting in a wine vinegar with a harmonious and expressive character. The wine vinegar combines with the grape must and the natural, complex sweetness of the honey to evolve into a finely balanced balsamic vinegar with subtle taste notes.
For the raspberry balsamic vinegar in the FINEST FOOD AGE BALSAMIC COLLECTION, the juice of ripe raspberries that has been cooked down to a concentrate rounds off the amalgam of flavours.
The magical taste of raspberries – the “king of the berries” – gives this balsamic vinegar in the FINEST FOOD AGE BALSAMIC COLLECTION a sensual flavour.
As an aperitif, raspberry balsamic vinegar forms the prelude to a romantic dinner.

And its use is not confined to sweet things: try flavoursome raspberry tomatoes sprinkled with raspberry balsamic vinegar – an unbeatable partnership!
