Description

Rozendal hibiscus vinegar is a balsamic style vinegar, flavoured with Hibiscus, matured in oak barrels over a twelve year solera system.

Red wine vinegar, Grape must, Hibiscus tea, Rose hip, elderflower, vanilla pod

Storage instructions:
Sediment may settle, shake before use


Fermentation

Rozendal employs the traditional French Orleans method of vinegar making: Wine is cultured by an indigenous “mother” (the acetobacter) from the first vinegar made on Rozendal in 1988 and allowed to ferment naturally in small oak barrels. Select ingredients are crucial to quality – we start with a good, balanced red wine (and not the dregs or caramel additives common in the vinegar industry).

Maturation

The balsam is then matured for up to 20 years in oak barrels, which allows it to soften in taste. Ageing takes place over a solera system; a complex maturation method that relies on the fractional blending of old vinegar with the new to ensure that the character of the original vinegar permeates every bottle. Finally, we bottle small batches using a gentle gravity-flow system, leaving the vinegar to evolve and mature further in the bottle.

Raw Rewards

Their slow processes yield a beautifully balanced, balsamic style vinegar good enough to drink neat – and indeed, a daily shot of the tonic is the morning norm on Rozendal Farm. This invigorating ritual is enjoyed for its taste, but also for its health benefits: Raw, naturally fermented vinegar helps to restore the body’s PH balance, by reducing the excess acid that results from our modern lifestyles.

    I love this vinegar, it has the acidity expected from a vinegar with a mellow, roundedness from the aging. The tart hibiscus flavour is balanced with the sweetness of the vanilla and elderflower. An absolute winner and I can’t get enough!

Breads are baked freshly each day, charcuterie is sliced to order and hampers are assembled shortly before delivery.

We are a Cape Town based company and refuse to compromise on the freshness of the products you receive from us. We have decided to keep our distribution region within the geographical bounds of being able to ensure the quality we promise to you.

Due to the geographical size of South Africa, fresh food logistics can be complex. Many companies have mitigated the need for refrigerated vans and courier vehicles by adding secondary packaging in the form of insulating polystyrene and ice packs.

We refuse to take an approach that adds further pressure on our already strained planet and for this reason restrict our national offering to non-perishables only. 

Fear not though as you can still get a great taste of the Sol's experience as many of our non-perishable hampers are perfect for the home or great as gifts.
