This clone produces a wine has terpene aromas. I smelled Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) ian annual herb in the family Apiaceae, related to parsley. Its considered a Muscat clone because Coriander produces both linalool (Riesling) and pinene (Pine trees, coriander, parsley). Aging in barrels muddles/destroys the aroma.
