Black Muscat (or Muscat Hamburg) is a red grape variety derived from the crossing of the Schiava Grossa and Muscat of Alexandria, in the UK in 1850 . It is commonly produced as table wine but it has also been used in the production of dessert wine. In France, the grape is used chiefly as dessert grape including AOC varieties such as Muscat du Ventoux.
As a dessert wine it can be highly aromatic with a rich coloring. In Eastern Europe, the grape produces a light, dry red wine.
