White grapes
Moscatel de Setúbal

This Eastern Mediterranean grape was introduced to the Iberian Peninsula by the Romans.

Its distinctive aroma is really easy to recognise - fresh grapes, raisins, lemons, lychees, pears and lime flowers. It has good, fresh acidity. Elsewhere in the world, this type of Muscat is most commonly known as Muscat of Alexandria. It can make light, summery wines, dry or off-dry, or, more often, sweet, fortified wines, most famous of which is Moscatel de Setúbal with its notes of orange zest, honey, spices, iodine, orange blossom and acacia.
