Muskateller is considered to be the oldest variety, as Noah supposedly took it with him onto his ark. There is evidence to show that the Romans brought it from Asia Minor and Egypt to Europe. It is a very aromatic variety with well-developed primary bouquet substances in the grape itself.
It requires excellent sites, light, stony or sandy, airy soil. As it has large grapes and ripens quite late, it is necessary to take care not to overyield it and to choose the harvest date very precisely. It gives an incredibly aromatic and rich wine with a distinct bouquet of muscat table grapes and raisins as well as orange flowers and peel.
