This red grape variety comes from the island of Mallorca (Spain). Synonyms are Corçac, Cursach, Escorçac, Escursag, Excursach, Maresco, Moresca, Moresque and Murescu. It was mentioned in the Balearic Islands in 1871. Almost eradicated by phylloxera at the end of the 19th century, the variety was revived in 2006 through new plantings. The late-ripening vine is relatively resistant to both mildews, but susceptible to botrytis. It yields aromatic red wines with moderate alcohol content and soft tannins. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
