Named for the temperature at which the grapes are picked, “Minus 8 is dark like a raisin, has a soft sweetness and glows with fruit.” Amanda Hesser, The New York Times Magazine. Minus 8 is the flagship and original vinegar of all the Minus 8 Vinegars and Verjus.
More complex and intense than ice wine in part from years of aging in French oak and bottle. Minus 8 is loaded with fruit, mild spice, toasted nuts and caramel tastes, with aromas of pineapple, candy apple and ripe berries.
Chefs choose this size most often. Each bottle of Minus 8 is cork sealed. These bottles can be cellared and aged for years.
Add a few drops of Minus 8 to fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, with some good oil, salt and pepper.
Pour a little Minus 8 and quality oil on a side plate and serve it with warm freshly baked bread.
Finish foie gras, meats, seafood, vegetables, desserts, sauces, and fruits with just a few drops. Make marinades, vinaigrettes, aspics, ice cream, or sip as a digestif.
