This is the classic Alsatian style marc. In the progression from floral to”earthy” the marc is a fairly big jump. The Gewurz nose is good but a little woodier than the Muscat. There is a little more jolt in the initial taste, but the finish is clean, not hot. Like all our marc or grappa this one is made in the most traditional style-pure pomace from the winemaker’s press. In recent years we have been getting our pomace from Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
