Brown Brothers Moscato Rosa
Muscat of Alexandria is part of the exotic Muscat family. The Romans are believed to have given the grape its name as they found its distinctive aroma akin to that of musk, and hence called it Moscato - smelling of musk. Viticultural experts have identified at least 200 different members of the Muscat family and several of these different clones have been cultivated in Australia for as long as grapes have been grown here. If harvested early, it produces delicate, perfumed, crisp, dry white table wines but if left to hang on the vines several weeks longer it produces rich flavoursome dessert wines. Cienna is a variety developed at the CSIRO in Australia which has parentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sumoll (rare Spanish variety). It favours a warm climate and shows ripe red berry fruit characters.
