    Winemaker's Notes:

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

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

    Subtle but delightful in it's light sweet citrus flavor
    DetCor (4/30/2011)
    A very tasty sweet wine. It really is a pretty color. I think Quady Elysium Black Muscat is better tasting, but this is still good. It doesn't have the full flavor of the Black Muscat, but it is fairly fruity and sweet.
