    Lavender Vinegar

    Long used as a perfume, especially in toiletries such as soaps and shampoos, lavender also offers medicinal and culinary benefits. Its application as a means of reducing tension and stress is legendary. Perhaps less well known are lavender’s antispasmodic and antiseptic qualities..

    Preferred Preperation

    On Rozendal, the family farm in Stellenbosch, Nathalie Ammann uses the traditional French Orleans Method of vinegar preparation, passed down by her father, Kurt. Vinegars are made from a Bordeaux blend of Merlot and Cabernet grape cultivars, and cultured by an indigenous “mother” from the first vinegar made on Rozendal in 1988. The vinegars are naturally fermented in small oak barrels, then infused with organic herbs carefully selected for their culinary and health-enhancing properties, and the resulting vinegar is matured for up to 12 years. A balance of sweetness and acidity yields a balsamic-style vinegar, fundamental to cooking and a robust tonic.

     

     

    Rozendal Vinegar Cellar

    Wine

    It all starts with a good, well-balanced wine. We have been making wines since 1983 in the old world French-style, a Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. One could say that all wines would naturally become vinegar if it wasn’t for human intervention, but not all wines get the chance to become Rozendal Vinegar! It is quite a shift from making wines to making vinegar, but it came about as a happy “accident”, and as Kurt Ammann would say, “life has taught us what to do and how to move forward”. The word “vinegar” comes from the French “vinaigre” which means sour wine. This suggests that vinegar should be made from wine and indeed some of the best vinegars are. Strictly speaking, however, vinegar can be made from any substance with alcohol and sugar. We make our vinegars from oak barrel-matured red wines that are chosen for their complexity of flavours as well as their ability to mature over a number of years.

     

    ROZENDAL COMMISSIONED THE RENOWNED SOUTH AFRICAN COOK, MARTIN MÖSSMER, TO CREATE RECIPES THAT USE ROZENDAL VINEGARS AS THE KEY INGREDIENT. THE RESULTS WERE SPECTACULAR! OF COURSE, A GOOD VINEGAR CAN BE USED IN THE MOST SIMPLE OF WAYS TOO.

     

    Roznedal Vinegar Strawberry and goats cheese salad

    Strawberry, goat’s cheese and lavender-vinegar salad

    1 punnet strawberries
    2 tsp black pepper
    3-4 tbsp Rozendal Lavender Vinegar
    10 oz soft goat’s milk cheese, preferably chevin
    3 heads cos lettuce (romaine)
    A handful of wild rocket
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    Sea salt

    Wash, core and halve the strawberries. Place them in a bowl with the pepper and vinegar. Lightly bruise the strawberries with a fork so that their juice blends with the vinegar. Leave to macerate for at least half-an-hour. Wash the lettuce and rocket and tear leaves into a salad bowl. Remove the strawberries from the vinegar and add to the lettuce.

    Make the dressing by pouring the vinegar into a jar and adding salt and olive oil. Screw on the lid and give the jar a good shake. Taste the dressing and adjust the seasoning according to your taste.

    Pour the dressing into the salad bowl, toss to mix ingredients, then add the cheese. Enjoy outdoors under a shady tree with a glass of your favourite Chardonnay.
