Wine from direct producers
Especially outside Funchal and in smaller restaurants you are often offered wine from so-called direct producers. This means that the wine is made from grapes of the Vitis labrusca or Vitis aestivaldis variety and not from grafted european vines. The wine is easy to recognize from a strawberry-like "fox-taste", but I find it quite interesting together with spicy food.

OTHER OR ADDITIONAL MEANINGS OF "FOXY-TASTE"

Foxy
Term used to describe the strong grapey smell and taste of some wines made from our native Eastern grapes, such as Concord, Catawba, Niagara, and Delaware. Such grapes once were called "fox grapes," which accounts for the word "foxy." ...

Bought a Buffalo Grape the other day. I read the tags on all of them and each had some detraction. Several said they "lack foxy taste". What is that? Or if they had "foxy taste" they we're erratic in output, or susceptible to disease or or or. The only issue with the Buffalo was that it ripens late September. Does that mean, if we have a wetter or colder Sept than usual we won't get ripe grapes?

ADDITIONAL EXPLANATION FROM A TEAM MEMBER:

Fox-taste = izražen / mošusan / prodoran okus

Ovisi o čemu se radi, na primjer kod vina "foxy taste" ili "fox-taste" se spominje u negativnom kontekstu pljesnivog, zemljanog mirisa, no ne mora uvijek biti negativnog značenja. U svakom smislu aludira na prodoran, životinjski miris, može biti i doslovno miris lisice (iako ne znam točno kako lisica miriši) :)
