Description for the characteristic aroma and taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. Muscat is derived from the Latin term "nux muscata", which means "musk-scented nut". Nevertheless, the muscat tone must not be confused with the musky tone and also not with the grapey tone often attributed to muscat varieties. The 8 to 10 cm long nutmeg is the seed of the fruit of the nutmeg tree. The pear-shaped, ochre-yellow to orange fruits contain roundish seeds about 2 cm in size, which are surrounded by a red-coloured fleshy seed coat. The kernel of the seed is used both as a spice and as a drug. Colloquially, the seed is called nutmeg and the seed coat is called mace.
