Moscato Embrapa

The white grape variety (also Embrapa 131) is an interspecific new variety between Couderc 13 (Vitis aestivalis var. lincecumii x Couderc 162-5) x July Muscat (complex cross based on Muscat d'Alexandrie x Muscat d'Hamburg). It contains genes of Vitis aestivalis, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The crossing of the hybrids took place in Brazil in 1983 at the Agricultural Research Institute EMBRAPA in Sobral. The vine is resistant to botrytis. It produces qualitatively simple aromatic white wines with muscatel. It is also used as table grape. In Brazil, the variety is mainly cultivated in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. In 2010, a total of 862 hectares of vineyard area were designated (statistics Kym Anderson).
