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.


Winemaker's Notes:

Black Muscat, another under appreciated muscat variety, is known in Europe as a table grape variety, Muscat Hamburg, one of the very few black skinned muscats. If ripened to about 25 brix, it attains a rose-like aroma and litchi like flavor. This rose-like aroma led Quady to name the wine Elysium, Greek for heaven. Drinking this, you can almost feel you have fallen into a rose garden and been transported to heaven. Elysium is used to either accompany or replace dessert. It is wonderful with blue cheeses, with desserts containing red fruits (such as Summer Pudding, an English favorite), with vanilla, with dark chocolate, with ice cream desserts, and candlelight. One favourite is to pour the wine onto vanilla ice cream. Serve Elysium Sundae with a glass of Elysium. A very cool cocktail is the "Angeli Cooler". Fill a wine glass with ice cubes. Combine tonic water with Elysium (1/2 and 1/2) and a lemon wedge. The Angeli Cooler is perfect on those warm summer nights.
