Gran reserva sherry vinegar, denomination of origin Vinagre de Jerez, is produced with the traditional solera system in the Jerez region of Spain and aged a minimum of 10 years. A rich mahogany color and silky texture develop from the traditional solera process which begins with sherry wine and consists of oak barrels stacked atop each other, the bottom row home to the oldest vinegar, or the "solera". As the vinegar matures the original flavor of the wine takes on notes from the oak barrels and eventually realizes the intense flavor chefs seek.
