Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Red Wine Vinegar Gift Box
Marqués de Valdueza Gift Box with 250ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 250ml bottle of Red Wine Vinegar Marqués de Valdueza.
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from Arbequina, Picual, Hojiblanca and Morisca olives, blended by experts. It is a truly elegant oil, fresh and very slightly nutty with a little spice and a black pepper finish.
The red wine vinegar is made using pressed wine grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot), this vinegar is produced using the traditional Orleans method. This involves a long, slow process in which the vinegar is left to ferment in oak barrels, where it is exposed to oxygen through holes in the top of the barrel to encourage surface-born bacterial cultures to form. This method produces vinegar of the highest quality; clean and bright with a subtlety lost in the accelerated modern methods generally used.
The vinegar is then aged in four-year-old French oak barrels for about 36 months to produce this complex vinegar with great depth. Wild fennel from the estate is macerated in the vinegar to add a light note of liquorice.
