Aged Sweet Vinegar - South Australia
Most of the Balsamic vinegar we see in supermarkets are not that at all.
Real Balsamic is ten years old barrel aged and not all that sweet. Most of the stuff sold in Australia is made by adding caramel to pretty basic young vinegar and putting a flash label on it.
We have friends in the wine industry who have been quietly producing real Balsamic style for the last 10 years. We can now provide small quantities of a seven year old sweet vinegar that will give you some idea of what the real thing is all about.
