This sweet, white wine Moscatell Vinegar from Viticulture Espelt is a cook’s dream: bright, crisp grape flavors are juxtaposed with disciplined aging for a balanced, nuanced experience.
Great wine vinegar begins with great wine, so it’s not surprising that all KL Keller vinegar selections come from producers whose wines receive consistently high ratings from noted experts. Espelt is no exception. From the more than 16 varieties of grapes grown on its 500 acres on the Emporda plain north of Barcelona, Spain, Espelt produces wines that have drawn frequent acclaim from Robert Parker and other esteemed wine critics.
This is particularly impressive because winemaking is relatively new to the Espelt family, who have been grape growers, not vintners, for generations. It all changed in 2000, when they constructed a large, state-of-the-art winery in their village and began making their own wine, rather than supplying grapes to others. The winemaker, family member Ann Espelt, has brought a fresh, international perspective to their award-winning vintages, which is also reflected in this fine vinegar.
Why We Like It
A taste of Espelt Moscatell Vinegar is like popping a fresh grape into your mouth, as hints of citrus and green grape skins dance across the tongue. We love everything about Espelt wine vinegars—from the vinegars themselves to the fun, modern, retail-friendly labels—and we think you will, too! Also be sure to try soft, juicy Espelt Garnatxa Vinegar.
