Muscat Wine

Muscat wines typically have a grapey taste and aromas of citrus, rose and peach. Ripe Muscat grapes range from white to pink to red but Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, a white Muscat grape, is probably the most important variety of Muscat in the wine making world. This is the grape variety used to make white Asti wine in Piedmont in Italy as well as many other delightful sparkling Italian wines. Muscat of Alexandria is an important ingredient in fortified French wines known as Vins Doux Naturels. It is used to make sweet dessert wines known as Liqueur Muscat in Rutherglen in Australia as well as fortified Spanish wines known as Moscatels. When deciding on a food match, consider the sweetness or dryness of the wine. Drier Muscats such as Asti go nicely with light, summery, fruity desserts such as strawberry tart or sorbet, whereas sweeter Muscats are fabulous with something richer and darker such as a sticky toffee pudding or you could even try it with cubes of cheddar with quince jelly.
