Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Red Electra has a deep magenta color with a seductively enchanting aroma of fresh red raspberries with a hint of pomegranate. Pairs well with fresh fruits, mild cheeses, salads, pastas and spicy foods. Best served chilled, over ice or freeze to make a slushy sorbet.

About Quady Winery:

Andrew Quady started making wine in the mid 1970's. Working for a major wine company he moonlighted to produce his own ports and in 1980 experimented with Orange Muscat, ultimately making an amazing floral fruit character wine that he called Essensia. In 1990, Quady decided to produce a new type of dessert wine, light, delicate and very refreshing. He tasted Orange Muscat juice as it was turning into wine. When the juice was just on the verge - halfway between wine and grape juice, he bottled a test batch. The wine tasted wonderful, but the alcohol was only 4% (most wines are at least 11%). Using sterile filtration to prevent refermentation, he bottled it anyway and named the new creation Electra.
