Forvm Chardonnay Vinegar
Forvm or Forum Chardonnay Vinegar is a delicate variety made from Catalan Chardonnay grapes. The vinegar contains 25% grape juice which gives it sweeter, more rounded flavours than most vinegars, and perhaps explains Forvm Chardonnay vinegar’s somewhat cult following. Drizzle a little of the vinegar over cured salmon or scallops, or try a few drops inside a shucked oyster. Forvm Chardonnay is so sweet and delicious, it doesn’t even need mixing with olive oil for a salad dressing, but is wonderful when drizzled straight onto green leaves.
Forvm vinegar comes from the Roca family’s vineyard in Penedès – west of Barcelona. It started as a small winery but when the family tasted an old, abandoned barrel of wine they realised what excellent vinegar the grapes produced – so changed tack. The thirty year old company’s vinegars have featured on many prestigious menus – from Nobel Peace Prize dinners, to many of the world’s best kitchens, such as El Bulli.
