Shine Muscat grapes are larger than the average grape and have an oval to oblong shape, growing in tightly packed, medium-sized bunches. The skin is taut, smooth, glossy and in bright green colour. Underneath the surface, the flesh is generally translucent, soft, aqueous, and nearly seedless, though some may contain a few, small undeveloped seeds. Shine muscat grapes have a crisp, snap-like quality followed by a soft, juicy and sweet consistency. The grapes have high sugar content, averaging 18 Brix, and are known for their sweet, floral flavor with notes of tropical fruits, honey, and musk.

- Shine Muscat grapes are a fiber source to stimulate the digestive tract and contain vitamin C, an antioxidant that strengthens the immune system, reduces inflammation, and promotes collagen production within the skin. The grapes also contain potassium to balance fluid levels and other vitamins and minerals, including vitamins K and B6, magnesium, calcium, and iron.
