Essensia Orange Muscat Andy Quady California 2010

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.

I have been enjoying Essensia for years. It truly is a little taste of heaven, touched by apricots. I could not imagine my wine rack without a bottle of Essensia in reserve.

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

BRONZE MEDAL - Decanter World Wine Awards 2010 Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape (named because the grapes have an aroma reminiscent of orange blossom). It was an instant success at tastings and wine shows and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Quady is the foremost USA winery specialising entirely in dessert wines. Grapes: 100% Orange Muscat Region : USA / California Maker : Andrew Quady Fermentation : This white dessert wine was arrested with neutral grape brandy spirit. This arrested fermentation preserves the delicate aroma of the fresh, ripe grapes. Notes: A vibrant orange in colour, this wine delivers s weet oranges and apricots on the palate. Bittersweet orange marmalade balanced witha fine citric acidity. A great dessert wine. Serve: Chilled in small glasses and is excellent when served with desserts and chocolate. Sugar : Approx 140g/L Alcohol: 15%
