Its red fruit sensations enable it to be used to make salad vinaigrettes with strawberries, redcurrants or raspberries.

A delicious ingredient for sweet-and-sour sauces served with Oriental cooking or poultry such as duck breast.

Made with the "Method Schützenbach" consists of a slow and painstaking process to extract the best features of vinegar and its base wine in order to better preserve the aromas and flavours, achieving a very pleasant touch of acidity.

During the fermentation process, only the alcohol from the wine becomes vinegar. The other aromas and flavours only stay in the vinegar if the method used is slow and delicate. This is why, even when competing against quick, industrial fermentation systems for producing high volumes of vinegar with few sensory layers, here at Badia Vinagres we have chosen to stick with a traditional method that has been used for almost 200 years. Invented in 1823 by the German chemist Schützenbach, the method consists of a slow and painstaking process to extract the best features of vinegar and its base wine in order to better preserve the aromas and flavours, achieving a very pleasant touch of acidity. Special mention should be given to the last step of the manufacturing process of our Riesling and Merlot bittersweets, which is followed by a maturing stage in carefully selected French oak barrels. During this aging phase, the wood incorporates aromas from the exchange reactions between the two materials, thus refining and balancing the resulting vinegar.

SECRETS

If you want to discover the secrets hidden behind the vinegars Castell de Gardeny, first of all you have to observe them in a wine glass (just like you would do with wines) to appreciate its colour, cleanness, transparency and other characteristic aspects. Subsequently, you should smell them with delicacy and care, specially when they are just served, as they give off all their strength, something that can delete aromas, and it may bother. It is always better to let them settle before savouring them, and it is even better to pour some few drops in the glass, spread them on the walls and smell. This way, you can sense perfectly all the aromas. Finally, you shall taste them taking a sip of them and let them melt and spread through the tongue and the palate.
