Katz Late Harvest Viognier Honey Vinegar

375 ml
- Napa Valley

More than a few years ago, Albert set off on a course to make mead vinegar, combined with one of the many wine options available to him in the Napa Valley.

As a chef, he loves to use honey, an ingredient that he passionately incorporates into his dishes.

Taking almost two years to create, along with many trials and tribulations, in the process he decided to experiment and switched to a wine originally from the Rhone Region but now grown in California and Oregon. It was this switch that changed the course of time, or at least it changed Albert's thoughts on how to create this perfect Honey Vinegar.

Starting with Late Harvest Viognier, often described as fruity, flowery, and even honey-like, it was a brilliant revelation and ultimately the great combination that made this match heavenly.

No longer a mead-based vinegar, it is now a vinegar with honey. The Katz honey is added into the vinegar at a later stage in the vinegar-making process.

I got my first taste of this amazingly perfect vinegar many moons ago, and it still is one of my all-time faves. Full of sweetness, sharpness, and combined with the ever-so-vibrant nuances that the honey has created within it, this vinegar tests the imagination, inspiring thoughts of chicken, garbanzo salads, and as a way to deglaze a pan of princely perfect scallops. It was love at first sip!

I wanted it then. And now, almost a zillion years later, better than ever, I still crave it. This is one vinegar that can explain the joys of both vinegar and honey as two perfect ingredients!
