Tamâioasa Alba

Synonym (also Tamîioasa Alba) for the grape variety Muscat Blanc; see there.

The white grape variety probably originates from Italy or Greece, or more widely expressed "from the Mediterranean". It is the noblest but not most common variety from the large group of Muscatel (see general information there). The French name Muscat Blanc is most commonly used worldwide, the full name after the berry shape is Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains Ronds (Petits Grains Ronds = small round berries). Around 300 synonyms testify to its great age and worldwide distribution. There is hardly any wine-growing country where it is not cultivated. Some of them are varieties with the berry colours white (by far the most common), yellow, grey, green, pink, red, brown, purple, blue and black.
