Produced in the famous wine-making region of the Mösel in Germany, an area well known for its wine cultivation and production since the Roman times; the steep, verdant valleys and rich waterways create a unique micro-climate perfect for establishing vineyards.
Our extensive range of fruit-based Balsam wine vinegars are expertly crafted by the Oster family, who have been cultivating and producing excellent wines here for more than 15 generations.
This small family artisan producer blends premium white wine vinegars with natural fruit juices, fruit pulps and other natural flavourings. The resulting products are fruit vinegars with excellent flavour, truly expressive aromas and an impressive mouthfeel; three important qualities that are essential in the creation of fine wines, but also the production of quality wine vinegars.
Flavoured Balsamic Vinegars
Whilst all our fruit vinegars are low in acidity, our Balsam range are slightly higher with a more expressive acidity. Our Balsamic Dressing range have a creamy consistency and mouthfeel and a lower overall acidity utilising a more luxurious assortment of ingredients in their production such as naturally sweet date syrup or authentic barrel-aged balsamic vinegar from Modena as well as natural fruit juices.
Overall, our extensive range of fruit vinegars and their soft, fruity acidity, makes them ideal for both food preparation and beverage use. They are particularly enjoyable when partnered with our extensive range of flavoured olive oils, for the preparation of dressings & marinades.
Our Fruit Pulp vinegar range offers an altogether different and fresh approach to the production of fruit vinegars, but made according to the same traditional methods of care and attention and selected choice ingredients.
Quality, distilled spirit vinegar is used as a basis for these vinegar preparations, to which is added a high percentage of real fruit pulp or puree. The results are very authentic, fresh tasting, and intense in flavour. They are extremely versatile, and can all be used in desserts, savoury dishes, salads, cocktails and soft drinks.
Balsamic Vinegar of Modena
The Deli-cious offered range of Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, is purely focused on dedicated sourcing from highly respected, small family artisanal producers who have been perfecting their art of fine Balsamic vinegar production for more than a century.
Made traditionally from estate grown Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes, the pressed grape juice or ‘must’ is cooked down slowly in copper kettles over an open fire, and then decanted into wooden barrels along with an added proportion of aged grape must and ‘mother’ wine vinegar. It is then allowed to rest, evaporate and mature over time in barrels of various wood types such as oak, mulberry, chestnut, cherry and juniper, each of which infuse their own unique aromas and flavour notes.
Deli-cious offers authentic Balsamic Vinegars of Modena ranging from 6-years up to 15-years ageing quality, as well as an assortment of Condimento Balsama Bianco vinegars or so called “White Balsamic” vinegars of differing ageing qualities that have been aged in oak casks. All of these vinegar products are of the purest quality, with unique characters, flavour profiles and aromas.
