Quady Winery Black Muscat Madera Red Electra 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking Notes: In 1990, we decided to produce a new type of dessert wine, light, delicate, easy to drink, and very refreshing. We tasted Orange Muscat grape juice as it was turning into wine. When the juice was just on the verge — halfway between wine and grape juice, a small test batch was bottled. The wine tasted wonderful, but the alcohol was only 4% (most wines are at least 12%). The wine was bottled using sterile filtration to prevent re-fermentation and the new creation named Electra after the electric like texture one notices on the tip of the tongue. Tasting Notes: With the first sip you feel the wine- light as springtime, delicately sweet, refreshingly crisp, a bouquet of flowers with the taste of peach and melon. Electra is electricity for the mouth! 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. Martini Become Electra: Because of the uniqueness of Electa, it was bound to become an ingredient of an out of this world cocktail. One of our favorites is the "Martini Becomes Electra". Simply combine 2 ounces Absolut Vodka, .75 ounce Grand Marnier, .75 ounces Quady Electra, and 2 orange wheels shaken and strained and Viola!
