Gold Muscat

The white grape variety probably originates from Italy. Synonyms are Culupuntu, Fior d'Arancio, Golden Muscat, Moscatello di Vico, Muscato Armeno, Moscato Cipro, Moscato dalla Siria, Moscato di Pasqua, Moscato di Terrracina, Moscato Giallo (second main name), Moscato Sirio, Moscato Siro, Moscato Tardivo, Muscadeddu, Muscat du Pays (Switzerland), Muscatedda (Sicily), Muscat Italien, Muscato de Goloio, Muscat Vert and Muskat Zuti (Croatia). Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it should not be confused with the varieties Golden Muscat, Moscatel Amarillo, Moscato di Terracina, Muscat Blanc or Muscat Fleur d'Oranger. According to DNA analyses carried out most recently in 2018, the variety originates from a presumably natural cross between Muscat Blanc x unknown partner.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
