Essensia Orange Muscat Andy Quady California 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Distinctive flavours of orange blossom and apricots on the nose, derived from the Orange Muscat grape. Luscious texture on the palate. Perfect paired with desserts such as citrus tart.

From 100% Orange Muscat with an aroma reminiscent of Orange Blossom and Apricot, and a lingering refreshing aftertaste.

Very sweet, this dessert wine has potent flavors of tangerines, apricots, honey, butterscotch and vanilla. Crisp acidity provides clean balance. Delicious and heady.

On sweetness alone, this dessert wine earned a good score. The orange fruit flavors, which are so pure and pinpointed, are exorbitantly rich in wild honey and vanilla cream. The alcohol level is high, but therersquo;s a beautiful streak of vibrant acidity that provides balance. Easy to drink over repeated glasses.

A delicious dessert in a glass. Bursting with rose petal-scented litchi, nectarine, honey and orange aromas and flavors, this is a sensory symphony. Has elegance as well as intensity. Drink soon.

Deep orange copper color. Full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Dried oranges, spice. Classic spicy orange aromas lead to a full, expansive palate feel. Rich, though not viscous, with solid acidity and a touch of heat to the finish.

A fortified dessert wine done in a Beaumes-de-Venise style. Golden color with an orange marmalade and tangerine aroma. The flavors are bright and fresh featuring orange, caramel and honey. A sensual delight with a warm mouthfeel from the elevated alcohol. Very sweet, at its best served well-chilled.

Wonderful aromas and flavors to match, with lots of orange, nectarine, fig and tangerine flavors that are elegant and lively. Drink now through 2004.
