Winemaker's Notes

Black Muscat is known in Europe as a table grape variety, Muscat Hamburg, one of the very few black skinned Muscats. If ripened to about 25 brix, it attains a rose-like aroma and litchi-like flavor. This rose-like aroma led Quady to name the wine Elysium, Greek for heaven.

Elysium is used to either accompany or replace dessert. It pairs well with blue cheeses, desserts containing red fruits (such as summer pudding), vanilla, dark chocolate and ice cream desserts. Particularly delicious is pouring the wine onto vanilla ice cream to make an Elysium Sundae.

This is an excellent dessert wine. It is very sweet, but has a good kick to it as well. It holds up very well as a topper for vanilla ice cream, and is sweet enough to stay flavorful when eaten with chocolate. One of my all time favorites.

I have never been a big fan of wine, but a friend of mine told me I had to try this. I was skeptical about it, but on my first sip I knew I had found a wine I could truly enjoy!
