Muscat is one of the world's oldest cultivated grapes, from a great family of more than 200 varieties. It produces a full range of white wines: sweet wines in warm Australian climates, drier wines in cool French d'Alsace climates, sweet sparkling wine such as Italy's Asti (Spumante), and Greek fortified wines. Muscat is typically low in acidity, rich in flavor, and possessed a distinct floral aroma. The crème de la crème of the Muscat family is Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, a version known for its distinctly grapey characteristics. It's grown all over the world under various names such as Muscat Canelli, Brown Muscat, Moscato Bianca (of Asti renown), and Liqueur Muscat from Australia and South Africa.
