Muskateller is one of the world’s most ancient grape varieties, believing to have originated from the Mediterranean region. The grape has been grown across the globe and is the lively and spicy representative of the Muskat family. The origins of Muskat are unknown, but possibly from Italy or Greece, where you can still find Muskat varieties today (such as Moscato in Italy). The grapes are medium, loose to dense round berries. The grapes are difficult to grow as they are rot-prone and the yield is unpredictable because of a sensitive flowering phase; the variety is highly susceptible to oidium and Botrytis. It grows best in warm, airy sites. The grape delivers wines with a more or less intense nutmeg aroma and flavor. The wine is a rarity with a well balanced bouquet and a pronounced character with sufficient acidity.
