An unaged single grape grappa from the Villa de Varda distillery, which is based in Trentino, Northern Italy.
This grappa is made with Traminer grape pomace, more commonly known as Gewürztraminer. This grape is common the are surrounding the border between France and Germany, and produces a wine varying between off-dry, dry and sweet. It is renowned for its lychee and floral flavours. It is also native to the Trentino region.
The pomace is taken still wet with wine, and fermented with Villa de Varda’s specialty yeasts. Distillation occurs in traditional copper non-continuous stills.
As an unaged bottling, this spirit offers a vivid flavour of the grape pomace itself, with a slightly funky grape flavour accompanied by touches of rose petal, orange rind, lychee, peppery spice, apricot and almond.
A bright and refreshing grappa, from a truly excellent grape.
