Muscat, A Beginner’s Guide

 

An aromatic grape that has been around since antiquity. It has many clones, red, white, and even pink and is found all over the world. It’s most famous as a sweet wine, and these luxurious dessert wines crop up in places like Greece, France, Australia, Italy, South Africa, and more. This ancient grape was made into wines by the Greeks and Romans and possibly also used by the Egyptians.

 

The most famous Muscat clones are Muscat à Petits Grains, Muscat of Alexandria, and Muscat Ottonel. In general, the it is noted for it’s ‘grapey’ character. It also has head floral aromas and can even be a bit musky. The frizzante, lightly sweet wines of Moscato d’Asti are made from Muscat blanc à Petits Grains known as Moscato Bianco in Italy. It’s a large family of grapes thanks to its tendency to mutate.

 

What foods does Muscat pair best with? It depends on the style. Dry versions are light-bodied and tend towards lower alcohol, but with they’re brilliant with certain veggie dishes. Sweet Muscat is perfect with fruit desserts (like tarts and trifles), cheeses, and even spicy dishes! It’s lovely with salty dishes as well.
