They may have changed the name, but they still use the French Champagne Method to create the California Sparkling Wine that they then handcraft into their crisp white wine vinegar using the traditional Orleans Method and barrel aging. KATZ Sparkling Wine Vinegar, with its pristine clarity, is reflective of its California sparkling wine roots. It is made from 95% Suisun Valley, California Chardonnay and a 5% mix of Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Its desirable acidity level of 6%, creates a tart, full-bodied vinegar with “soft” edges and a fruity aroma. Offering crisp and pleasant acidity, hints of vanilla from the oak and subtle nuances of melon and cucumber in the finish, its clean taste lends itself to a myriad of culinary uses.
