This traditional Spanish style merlot based finishing vinegar is crafted from premium merlot grapes from selected cool climate south-eastern Australian vineyards.

ALTO Merlot Vinegar is a versatile essential in your pantry and a natural companion to ALTO Extra Virgin Olive Oils. Use in dressings, marinades, when deglazing red meats or roasting duck and game, and in a variety of reductions and sauces. Used sparingly it can add tang to marinated strawberries.

This garnet red, full-bodied, bitter-sweet Spanish style red wine vinegar displays rich red berry fruit aromas underpinned by tinges of toast and mulled pears, leading to a structured, complex and long palate with a spicy final twist.

ALTO Agridulce Merlot Vinegar adds complexity to:
• Roasted tomatoes, instead of balsamic
• Braised beef cheeks
• Deglazing – duck breasts, roast lamb and beef
• Sauces – with cherries for duck or venison, and red meat reduction
• Preserved vegetables – pickled onions
• Chutneys
• Poached red fruits

Origin: Crookwell, Great Dividing Range, NSW Australia.

Variety: 100% Australian grown Merlot.
