In this province the cultivar has demonstrated its ability to produce excellent wines in the aromatic style reminiscent of the world’s best Muscat wines. The most obvious use for such an intense and sweetly-perfumed variety is in the making of sweet and dessert wines -- and ice wines made from New York Muscat rank among the very best sweet wines of the world.

Such wines are similar to Alsatian Muscat, at least those made from the superior Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains, rather than the less noble, but more popular Muscat Ottonel.

  •  Hello all!I am proud to be a wine lover, but an amateur at best. To improve my knowledge I have been studying (God bless my university's library!) as much as I can about regions, varietals, etc. through books and whatnot.
