A delicate blend from Extremadura, Spain. Merula is a fruity oil with a medium intensity. The olives, from four varietals, create a softness that persists over time, with light bitterness and a slightly more intense, spicy finish.
Sherry vinegars (and wines) are aged in the traditional 'solera' process, where the newest vinegar has its own cask, and is slowly blended with more venerable vinegars in different barrels every year. The result is a perfectly balanced, delicious reserva vinegar.
One of the best balsamic vinegars from the New World, Traditional Balsamico of Monticello is made right here in New Mexico. Aging a blend of sweet, white Italian grape varietals (grown in New Mexico) in traditionally crafted Italian wood casks for a minimum of 12 years, the result is luxuriously viscous, sweet with great acidic balance and complex. As with fine wines, each traditional balsamic will present its own character in a unique, pleasing and memorable way.
