The love of Muscat White for sunlight is common knowledge. It thrives when the sun warms up its small berries, bestowing on their thick skin a freckle-dotted yellow-gold color and uniquely concentrating the variety’s aromas and flavor. As a result, small-berried Muscat White yields dessert wines of international stature (“Muscat of Patras”;“Muscat of Rio Patras”; “Muscat of Rhodes”; “Samos” ; and “Muscat of Cephalonia”).
