Muscat Ottonel


Muscat Ottonel is the most delicate member of the Vitis Vinifera Muscat family in terms of color, aroma and flavor. The berries are green with a hint of yellow and medium in size. More cold-hardy than other Muscat grapes, it ripens early and produces more delicate wines. Sensitive to noble rot, Muscat Ottonel is often used in late harvest or dessert wines.
