Half Bottles Elysium Black Muscat 2022
Black Muscat, another underappreciated Muscat variety, is known in Europe as a table grape variety, Muscat Hamburg, one of the very few black skinned Muscats. The rose-like aroma led Quady to name the wine Elysium, which is Greek for heaven. Andrew Quady believes that drinking this, you can almost feel you have fallen into a rose garden and been transported to heaven - but then I suppose he would.
Quady Winery specializes in dessert wines from under-appreciated Muscat varieties: Essensia and Electra, made from Orange Muscat, and Elysium, from the Black Muscat variety, can either accompany or replace a dessert. One favourite is to pour the wine onto vanilla ice cream. Serve Elysium Sundae with a glass of Elysium. Great with vanilla, dark chocolate, blue cheeses, and, for those die-hard romantics, candlelight!
