This wine is best served with a simple dessert - or as dessert itself. It is very sweet with a rich taste of apricots. Do not over chill, or you'll lose much of the flavor.

A fortified dessert wine done in a Beaumes-de-Venise style. Golden color with an orange marmalade and tangerine aroma. The flavors are bright and fresh featuring orange, caramel and honey. A sensual delight with a warm mouthfeel from the elevated alcohol. Very sweet, at its best served well-chilled.

On sweetness alone, this dessert wine earned a good score. The orange fruit flavors, which are so pure and pinpointed, are exorbitantly rich in wild honey and vanilla cream. The alcohol level is high, but there's a beautiful streak of vibrant acidity that provides balance. Easy to drink over repeated glasses.

Very sweet, this dessert wine has potent flavors of tangerines, apricots, honey, butterscotch and vanilla. Crisp acidity provides clean balance. Delicious and heady.

Deep orange copper color. Full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Dried oranges, spice. Classic spicy orange aromas lead to a full, expansive palate feel. Rich, though not viscous, with solid acidity and a touch of heat to the finish.

Intensiv Strohgelb mit goldenen Reflexen. Aromen von Orangenblüten und Aprikosen. Süsses, aromatisches und fast an einen Grand Marnier erinnerndes Bouquet.

Wine Tasting NotesFrom 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. Its relatively high acidity makes it taste balanced, even with its considerable sweetness, more like the taste of fresh fruit than an old fashioned sticky sweet muscat.

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

Winemaker's Notes:

Essensia – 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. Essensia's vibrant flavor makes it an excellent accompaniment to desserts, particularly chocolate and those containing almonds, peaches, apples, or apricots. It is also used for dipping biscotti, for moistening cakes, or for adding to trifles. With sparkling water, it makes a refreshing spritzer; with sparkling wine it makes Essensia Royale.
