Paez Morilla Reserva 25

One of the unexpected benefits of my fascination with Jerez has been getting to know what proper vinagre tastes like. Sharp, intense, and rich, this beauty is in every dimension superior to the industrial version you may find in your supermarket.

It is produced by Paez Morilla, who have apparently been selling Vinagre de Jerez longer than anyone (since 1945 or thereabouts) and is produced in soleras fed with “vinos de jerez de palomino fino” (it says here). As a result it is a fairly hefty 8% proof but unlike some of the reserva vinagres I have tried it isn’t over the top.

Really cracking accompaniment to some nice fried hake today at Media Racion – all that was missing were the chips …
