Domaine Martin Jund Edelzwicker NV

Alsace, FranceMaison Martin Jund has Alsace roots in the Colmar region that date to 1630. The latest family iteration has been farming fruit that is organically certified since 1997. This dry blend of pinot blanc, muscat, riesling, and gewurztraminer labelled Edelzswicker is an ode to an ancient but still used term that designates any blending of white AOC Alsace grape varieties, without any indication of percentage. The varieties can be vinified together or separately. The vintage year on labels is not obligatory. Historically the various varieties came from the same parcel. The term Edelzwicker comes from the German words for edel (noble) and Zwicker (blend). On the palate, expect a subtle oily, yellow fruit affair that appears fruity on entry but finishes with a twist of bitterness that pulls it all together. A delicious Old World style that is food-friendly and is listed at a great price, considering it is sold in a one-litre bottle.Tasted: 11 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 31.99 1000 BCLS Producer: Maison Martin JundDistributors: Sur Lie
