Selected Grapes

MUSCAT

 

Muscat is probably the grape presenting the greatest combination of aromas, making it easily identifiable. The muscat grape is sweet.

Its aroma is one of ripe grape, musk, honey, peach, apricot, nectarine and orange, with floral hints of jasmine and rose.

When vinified, the grapes can produce light and dry wines, different types of fragrant and fruity white wines, as a small amount of muscat grape is enough to give the wine its fruity aroma.

Many wines and sparkling wines are produced using muscat grapes, always with a sweet characteristic.

They pair well with desserts, and when served cold, are refreshing and often served as an aperitif. It should not be consumed over 20ºC, in order to avoid it becoming too sweet.
