Product DescriptionWine Tasting 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. 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.

Deliciously sweet, although it is considered a dessert
wine, I like to drink a glass just before dinner as a sort of an appetizer. I would not recommend it for individuals who prefer their wines to be on the dry side. I also like the fact that it has an alcohol content slightly higher than what would be average for most wines.
