Late Harvest Viognier Honey Agrodolce Vinegar
After years in the making we proudly present Katz Late Harvest Viognier Honey Agrodolce Vinegar. Agrodolce in Italian means "sweet and sour." Here, we marry our own Branches Wildflower Honey, gathered from the Sierra foothills, with Late Harvest Viognier wine that is crafted from grapes left on the vine to enhance their sweetness and deep spicy, floral qualities. They then are blended together in oak barrels and slowly fermented into our finished KATZ Late Harvest Viognier Honey Agrodolce vinegar.
The Viognier grape is native to the Rhone region of France. Known for its soft fruity and floral characteristics, it has 'transplanted' well to the limestone and clay soils of the North Coast growing region of California. The taste profile of "peach" and "apricot" is a perfect marriage for sweet, floral notes of honey.
Never heated or pasteurized, and only lightly filtered, the flavors can best be expressed as the honey is "dancing on top of the vinegar." With hints of honeysuckle, vanilla and apricot balancing out the pleasant acidity, it is a natural partner with food.
KATZ traditional Orleans Method vinegars are proudly recognized on the Slow Food ARK OF TASTE - "Helping save cherished Slow Foods one product at a time."
