This variety is known to have originated in Egypt, having spread to the Mediterranean from Alexandria, possibly during the period of the Roman Empire (Galet 1985).
It is a grape of average strength and has a difficult flowering and fertilization, prone to not fruiting after flowering. Resistant to dryness, it's sensitive to mildew and powdery mildew.
There are various types of Moscatel in the world (ex. the French Muscat, the Italian Moscato), and all of them with a significant concentration of aromatic (terpene) and flavor components.
However, it's the Portuguese Moscatel that has the best concentration and richness of these components.
The typical aromas of Moscatel are well-known: citrus flowers and zest, honey, lime, rose, lychee, pear, date and raisin, which create memorable wines.
Grown throughout Portugal, this grape produces vibrant wines with flavors of orchard fruits and citrus, and are best enjoyed young.
In warmer regions like Tejo, the grape retains its high natural acidity and can work well as a single-varietal wine or in a blend.
Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white-wine grape variety.
Riesling is used to make crisp, refreshing wines with pronounced acidity.
In the Tejo region the Riesling style in its own right, with crisp, citrus-scented acidity and aromas of toast and honeysuckle.
A grape variety well adapted to the Tejo region, which produces a fantastic blend with Arinto and Moscatel grapes.
