Chardonnay Wine Vinegar (Organic)

  • $ 12.95


Chardonnay Wine Vinegar

Organic Chardonnay wine gives this extraordinary white vinegar its robust, fruity taste with a hint of oak, not unlike sturdy French Burgundy. Use to make classic French vinaigrette for dressing delicate salad greens, and for potato, rice or pasta salads; chilled chicken and seafood dishes. Combine with olive oil and herbs for marinades, and use for classic Beurre blanc (French butter sauce). Certified by CCOF.

More Information

California wines from the Alexander family winery or local vintners are used to handcraft Kimberley’s one-of-a-kind vinegars. Using the time-honored Orleans process developed during the Middle Ages in France, the vinegar matures slowly and naturally for a minimum of 12 months in oak barrels. Rich and refined with a distinct varietal wine flavor, Kimberley vinegars reflect the fertile soil and unique climate of California. They are a robust 6.5% acidity, unpasteurized (to preserve the vinegar’s subtle taste characteristics), and preservative-free.
