External Reviews for Quady Winery Orange Muscat California Essensia
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.
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.
Very sweet, this dessert wine has potent flavors of tangerines, apricots, honey, butterscotch and vanilla. Crisp acidity provides clean balance. Delicious and heady.
A fortified dessert wine made from the Orange Blossom Muscat grape variety with a distinctive and flavorful essence that pairs dramatically well with chocolate.
Intensiv Strohgelb mit goldenen Reflexen. Aromen von Orangenblüten und Aprikosen. Süsses, aromatisches und fast an einen Grand Marnier erinnerndes Bouquet.
Wonderful aromas and flavors to match, with lots of orange, nectarine, fig and tangerine flavors that are elegant and lively. Drink now through 2004.
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.
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.
