Gourmet Roast Potatoes
Treat yourself to a side-dish fit for a king and turn the humble roast potato into a culinary triumph. The muscatel white wine vinegar aged in traditional oak barrels gives this dish such a flavour boost, that you will never look at roast potatoes in the same way again.
Wine pairing:The elegant minerality of Balassa Winery's Tokaji Furmint 2019perfectly complements the roasted, salty notes of the potatoes, while the dynamic acidity of the Furmint grapes in both wine and vinegar makes for an irresistible match.

white wine vinegar
