Gold Medal Winner: 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition
Made from 100% Orange Muscat, Essensia has an aroma reminiscent of Orange Blossom and Apricot. 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 a taste of fresh fruit. Essensia is used as a dessert accompaniment or a dessert in itself.
Best served chilled. Pair with white fruits such as peach, pear or apricot, with goat cheese or with chocolate. Try as a spritzer with seltzer or as a fresh alternative to liqueurs in cocktails.
