Is a delicious Californian dessert wine from Quady Winery California USA. This wine is made from Muscat grapes.
An aroma of roses accompanies dark fruit – cherry, strawberry – balanced with fruit acidity to finish clean.
In 1983, a nearby grower brought Andrew Quady some Black Muscat grapes that were previously destined for sacramental wine at a local church. When the church ceased operations, the grower was left with truckloads of ripe, unwanted Black Muscat. The grower heard through the grapevine that newcomer Quady had some success with Orange Muscat, so he knocked on Quady’s door, and the rest is history.
Quady handled the Black Muscat in the same manner as Essensia: crushing, chilling and allowing the grapes to macerate. He added wine spirits to arrest the fermentation. On draining the tank the winery began to smell of roses! In his amazement he held a naming contest and selected Elysium, “state of eternal bliss” in Greek, as a name for this exciting muscat wine.
Elysium’s violet-crimson color and litchi-rose aroma develop after the fruit attains full maturity. This requires a warm climate. In warmer years the color is darker and the aroma is more intense.
Elysium is wonderful with cheeses, especially goat cheese or Gorgonzola; with desserts containing red fruits, such as English Summer Pudding; with dark chocolate and with cream desserts and cheesecake. Elysium poured onto vanilla ice cream is an effortless favorite.
The heart on the Elysium label is drawn by artist Ardison Phillips. The label design is by Laurel Quady.
