Quady Winery, Deviation NV, California - half bottle

Blood orange, herbal and white peppercorn with a sweet and spicy pink grapefruit finish. A great dessert wine, with a difference.

Producer Note

Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat
grape. It was an instant success and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Now Quady is the foremost American winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. In 1975 Quady's first port-like wine was made from Amador County Zinfandel. Now it is made from traditional
Portuguese varietals such as Tinta Roriz and Tinta Cao.

Vineyard
The Orange Muscat vines are grown in well drained, alluvial soils.

Winemaking

The fermentation was arrested with a neutral grape brandy. This arrested fermentation preserved the delicate aromas of the fresh, ripe grapes. The herbs
Damiana and scented Geranium were added to the Orange Muscat base wine and left to macerate for a period of seven days. The wine was filtered, bottled and
aged at the winery for one year, before release.

Tasting Note

A brilliant golden amber hue leads to aromas of honeysuckle, enhanced by a delicate hint of Gardenia. On the palate, blood orange, herbal and white
peppercorn notes combine with a sweet, spicy pink grapefruit finish. The Damiana herb is reputed to have aphrodisiac properties! A great dessert wine, with a
difference.

Serving Suggestion

Chilled in small glasses; this is excellent when paired with desserts and chocolate.
