Great mixer for some San Pellegrino. Tastes like Sangria. I added some fresh cut strawberries and a squeeze of lemon juice. Great for a hot afternoon. Read more
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

I was told that "Elysium" is Greek for paradise. Funny, because the first thing I thought of when I tried this wine was, "Heaven." So delicious.
How many ways to say, "I love thee!" Pansy, rose, plum and lychee. Lingering, sweet finish. It's my favourite dessert wine. Have it with Vanilla icecream, fresh berries and dark chocolate... or nothing at all. Drink chilled.
Great mixer for some San Pellegrino. Tastes like Sangria. I added some fresh cut strawberries and a squeeze of lemon juice. Great for a hot afternoon.
a nicely sweet but not too sweet muscat that reminds me of Welch's grape juice. Potpourri and other floral notes on the nose, soft mouthfeel but drops off in the end
Garnet-cherry colour with medium intensity. Red tree fruit, specially ripe cherry and plum on the nose. A well balanced dessert wine with sufficient acidity to balance the sugar. Luscious red fruit on the palate and a lingering finish.
Lovely dessert wine: rose and lychee on the nose and palate. Lingering, sweet finish. Pairs well with dessert cheeses but I prefer sipping Black Muscat alone or pairing with a fine dark chocolate.
...and the angels sing. Replaces dessert. Replaces everything you thought you had to do after dinner and beyond. Drink it as you look up into the night sky. The stars will smile on you if you do.

A beautiful dessert wine that should influence consumers to rediscover the category. Almost as dark as a red wine, it's soft in texture and extraordinarily sweet, with intense essence of tangerine and raspberry flavors. Hard to exaggerate the deliciousness factor. Good value in a full 750-milliliter bottle.
Rote Farbe mit Violettreflexen. Aromen von Rosen, Cassis, Litchi und Holunder. Äusserst fruchtig und elegant mit einer lebendigen Süsse. Dieser rote Dessert-wein ist eine absolute Rarität und eine Bereicherung jeder Degustation.
"Elysium" in Greek mythology is the afterlife of perfect bliss, and it's not hard to imagine this as the house pour. It is sweet - but not shockingly so - with blackberry, orange, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and a richly smooth mouthfeel. If you're treating yourself to something chocolaty, especially if it has oranges or strawberries, this will be a seductive companion.
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. Following the success of Essensia, Andy's next creation was Elysium from the Black Muscat grape, which is magenta in colour, with a haunting flower-like aroma. Quady is the foremost USA winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: Black Muscat Taste: A wonderful dessert wine with a rich berry flavour and a crystalline aroma of petals Serve: Chilled in small glasses and is especially excellent when matched with desserts, chocolate and vanilla ABV: 15% R/S: 160 gr/ltr
