Food Pairings for Essensia
From 100% Orange Muscat with an aroma reminiscent of Orange Blossom and Apricot, and a lingering refreshing aftertaste, Essensia is used as a dessert accompaniment or a dessert in itself.The Orange Muscat grape variety is little known. It was once grown in France and there are some small plantings in Italy and Australia.The wine is lightly fortified to about 15% alcohol and aged for 3 months in French Oak. Its relatively high acidity makes it taste balanced, even with its considerable sweetness, more like the taste of fresh fruit than an old fashioned sticky sweet muscat.Special Award: World Wine Championship - 91 Exceptional.Silver Medal: San Francisco Fair International, Tasters Guild Wine Lover.
