This variety is known to have originated in Egypt, having spread to the Mediterranean from Alexandria, possibly during the period of the Roman Empire (Galet 1985).
It is a grape of average strength and has a difficult flowering and fertilization, prone to not fruiting after flowering. Resistant to dryness, it's sensitive to mildew and powdery mildew.
There are various types of Moscatel in the world (ex. the French Muscat, the Italian Moscato), and all of them with a significant concentration of aromatic (terpene) and flavor components.
However, it's the Portuguese Moscatel that has the best concentration and richness of these components.
The typical aromas of Moscatel are well-known: citrus flowers and zest, honey, lime, rose, lychee, pear, date and raisin, which create memorable wines.
Grown throughout Portugal, this grape produces vibrant wines with flavors of orchard fruits and citrus, and are best enjoyed young.
In warmer regions like Tejo, the grape retains its high natural acidity and can work well as a single-varietal wine or in a blend.
Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is – if the majority of top wine critics are to be believed – the world's finest white-wine grape variety.
Riesling is used to make crisp, refreshing wines with pronounced acidity.
In the Tejo region the Riesling style in its own right, with crisp, citrus-scented acidity and aromas of toast and honeysuckle.

Wines from the Tejo region
Family-owned estate winery with 30 hectares. Dedicated to producing wines of exemplary quality, enhanced by a regional character.
Our story starts with a passion for wine and the Templars history when, back in 1989, we discover old vineyards left to natural succession near Tomar, a city located in the center of Portugal and founded by the Knights Templar.
Nourished by a sunny, warm and dry climate, relative cool nights, with limestone-clay and schistose soils, this fertile agriculture region has excellent natural conditions for grape growing.
Inspired by the multi-centenary Templar’s art of winemaking in this region, we embraced our new ambition by building a state-of-the-art winery and gradually restructured the vineyards to achieve a balance of young/old vines, all under the supervision of an experienced technical team.
Reaching top 3 in one of the largest international wine competition strengthened our focus on making world-class wines at affordable prices. Our dedication to quality is consistently recognized by several Gold and Silver medals in rigorous wine competitions and 85+ ratings (Very Good) in renowned international publications.
