Traminer grapes, from the wine-estate of Vehlich in Apetlon, are harvested in a selected area, sorted out, gently pressed, and delivered to our vinegar brewery
After the juice is simmered at a considerable temperature for several days, the flavours and the fruit sugar become concentrated. The juice is then filled into barrels and brought to an alcoholic fermentation. When the desired alcohol level has been reached, we air the derived wine and inject it with pure cultured vinegar bacteria (= mother-of-vinegar). After the fermentation process, the young vinegar will mature in oak barrels. We leave the barrels to the weather, so that the vinegar can “work” with the seasons. During wintertime, a kind of hibernation takes place, and in summer, due to hot temperatures, liquid can evaporate through the wood’s pores, whereby the volume decreases from year to year and the vinegar becomes more condensed – “fuller”.
Unlike the classic Aceto Balsamico, this balsamic vinegar does not mature in different types of wood. We take the view, that one fruit or one wine, respectively, should mature in only one type of wood. Where different types of grapes are used for the Aceto Balsamico, different types of wood should likewise be applied. Additionally, we do not add any caramel or colouring agents to our balsamic vinegar to have them appear dark and sweet. The type TRAMINER distinguishes itself through mild acidity and its unique flavour. Some years ago we created another two balsamic grape vinegars. For us it is fascinating to see how the different flavours of each grape become apparent in the respective vinegar.
As far as we know, producing a classic balsamic vinegar, from one type of grape, has not yet been attempted.
