Quady Essensia Orange Muscat 2016
|Region||California, Central Valley, Madera|
Essensia is a full-bodied sweet wine made with Orange Muscat Grapes. The experience of Essensia is unmistakable: a rich gold in the glass is accompanied by spicy orange-apricot-pear flavors and aromas, balanced with perfect fruit acidity to finish clean, tempting you for one more sip.
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.
This powerful dessert wine offers heady aromas of orange peel, almonds and honey followed by sweet, vibrant and concentrated fruit and nut flavors. It's full bodied, fully sweet but not sugary, and well balanced by acidity.
