Sun Muscat

The white grape variety is a new variety between Calmeria x Fresno P64-18 (Muscat d'Alexandrie x Sultana). Synonyms or breeding numbers are C 58-93, Fresno 58-93 and Sunmuscat. The cross was made in 1958 and the selection in 1961 in the USA by the breeder John H. Weinberger. The berries have a muscat tone. The vine is mainly used for the production of table grapes and sultanas. It is grown in Australia in the Murray Darling and Swan Hill areas. In 2016, a total of 23 hectares of vineyards were designated there (Kym Anderson statistics).

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
