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. The wine tastes balanced, like the taste of fresh fruit. - Winery

A fortified dessert wine made from the Orange Blossom Muscat grape variety with a distinctive and flavorful essence that pairs dramatically well with chocolate.

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.

From the orange Muscat grape, a fortified dessert wine that is so good as to warrant a patent on the name. Beautiful aroma of orange patisserie with enough acidity to nicely balance the sweetness.

Electra is an attractive, light-bodied Orange Muscat from Californian dessert wine and port specialist Quady. With lovely peach and marmalade flavors, it has a low, 4% alcohol level achieved by stopping fermentation through chilling and filtering.

A low alcohol, delicately sweet wine, refreshingly crisp and mysteriously aromatic. Goes well with salads, spicy foods, fruits, desserts, sunny afternoons, blue skies and fresh air.

Winemaker's Notes:

Electra goes with summer fruits (strawberries, nectarines, peaches, melons), salads, spicy Asian and Indian foods, light desserts, blue skies and fresh air. And with only 4% alcohol, you can still play volleyball after the picnic.
