Quady Essencia Orange Muscat
Quady Essencia Orange Muscat, palate is rich and sweet, with vibrant peachy and orangey fruit. Ends with a lingering, refreshing aftertaste.
With an aroma reminiscent of orange blossom and apricots, very good with almost any dessert, but particularly those with chocolate, orange or apricots.
Andrew Quady’s change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia, it was an instant success at tastings and wine shows and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand.
Quady is the foremost American winery specializing entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide.
When Andrew Quady and his wife Laurel moved to the San Joaquin Valley to pursue a rural lifestyle and an enology degree at U.C. Davis for Andy, an earlier career producing explosives transformed into a more sensitive, but still dramatic life crafting intense Muscat wines.
1600 cases of Zinfandel port started the Quadys off on sweet feet in 1975
The dessert experience is our specialty and we've converted many who thought they didn't drink sweet.
Our muscats and moscatos are the perfect complement to all kinds of desserts: vanilla ice cream, pie, chocolate, fruit with whipped cream–you are limited only by your imagination.
In a small San Joaquin valley town, Andrew Quady discovered an unused patch of the rare Orange Muscat grape varietal, known in Italy as Moscato Fior d’Arancio.
These grapes became the first Essensia. This marked the birth of Quady Winery's Muscat expertise - where the rich flavours of rare Muscat varietals are celebrated and intensified rather than blended and softened.
Michael Blaylock joined Quady as winemaker to manage the sudden growth in winemaking operations inspired by Essensia Orange Muscat and Elysium Black Muscat Dessert Wines.
Three decades later he has a lot of award winning sweet wines to smile about.
