(From 2013 Vintage) 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.
Produced from 100% Black Muscat, a variety with an exotic rose-like scent. The aromas are of roses and the flavors are a combination of lichees and berries. This is a wonderful, rich tasting wine, smooth and luscious. This is our favorite to accompany a dark bitter sweet chocolate torte; it is also great poured over vanilla ice-cream or served with blue cheese, and makes a great purple martini.
