Dew Drop Wine Details

Description: Dew Drop is a sweet white wine made from Muscat Alexander grapes. Flavors of pineapple, peach and citrus make this wine a tropical experience.

Varietal Definition
Muscat of Alexandria:
(aka Muscat Gordo Blanco or Lexia in Australia and Hanepoot in South Africa). Ancient grape species suitable for similar Mediterranean growing climates as the Muscat Blanc above. Makes sweet wines that are usually judged of inferior quality compared to those of the Muscat Blanc cepage varieties. The main use in California is for producing raisins. Also widely grown in Spain, where it is called Moscatel de Alejandria, and Portugal where winemakers in the latter country use it to make "Moscatel de Setubal" sweet wine.
