Definizione

The solid residue (primarily skins, seeds and stems) left over from draining juice from white must, or draining new wine from a red fermentation tank. 1

Nota

Pomace is often discarded as an unwanted byproduct of winemaking. […] After winemakers squeeze the juice out of their grapes, they're left with pomace, the mass of skins, seeds, stems and pulp that are left behind in the winepress. Instead of throwing the pomace away, centuries of winemakers have found ways to make the generous grape keep on giving, e.g. pomace wine, brandy, grapeseed oil, animal feed and compost, biogas. 2

Contesto

White pomace, often pressed gently to avoid extracting bitter compounds into a delicate white wine, can end up juicy and sticky with sugar. On the other hand, red pomace often forms amorphous clumps and can be quite dry to the touch. 3
