Quady Essencia Orange Muscat California Dessert Wine 375 mL


These are half-bottles (375mL)! 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast, July 2013 “This consistently incredible quaff from Quady tastes intensely of orange rind and is perfumed with the essence of orange oil. It is lightly textured and brightly refreshing, with a backbone of pear. First made in 1980, Quady Essensia is great on its own, over ice, or mixed into a cocktail.” -Virginie Boone


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.

In 1980, Andrew Quady’s discovery of underused Orange Muscat grapes in Reedley, California, led him to make a wine that celebrated the intense aromas and spicy fruit flavors of the grapes. “Essensia” refers to the idea that the wine contains the very essence of the grape. In Italy the variety is known as Moscato Fior d’Arancio: Orange Blossom Muscat.

Essensia and dessert are sensational together. Pair with chocolate, almond, peach, apricot and apple desserts, or cheesecake. Dip in biscotti, moisten cakes, and add to truffles. Drink it alongside fresh goat cheese and enjoy the interplay between the sweet and sour flavors.
