Our Vincotto is rich and thick and with its perfect balance of sweet and sour, it will enhance both savoury and dessert dishes making it an extremely versatile pantry staple. With 1kg Australian grapes used in the making of every 250ml bottle, it is oh-so-fruity!
Made in the traditional way by slow cooking and reducing concentrated grape juice (like grape must) for several hours in large pots. All the concentrated grape juice is made from Australian grapes and the use of concentrated grape juice allows for the making of this delicious artisan product all year round. With the added touch of red wine vinegar, this provides the Vincotto with a slightly tangy taste, a little acidity and rounds out the natural sweetness of the concentrated grape juice.
Use simply as a dressing over your favourite salad – think Rocket & Pear with Walnuts and Blue Cheese. Pair with aged cheese & dried fruit, serve with game and other dark roast meats, or use as a glaze (in the final stages of cooking meat such as pork or chicken to provide a sticky, sweet finish). In addition, Vincotto can also be used similarly to caramelised balsamic vinegar as a dressing or garnish on a plat, just prior to serving, over bruschetta, pizza or risotto.
For something sweet, drizzle over fresh seasonal fruit or add flavour to poached pears. Great for enhancing dairy-based desserts.
