Dessert & Fortified Wine | Muscat/Muscadine
Quady White Electra Moscato Wine 2017 offers soft bubbles that float over flavors of sweet citrus, peach, and melon. A bouquet of wildflowers refreshes the senses. It is a Moscato d'Asti style picnic wine for drinking outside, in warm weather, chilled or on the rocks. Compared to other Moscato, it is more aromatic, crisp, and refreshing. Whereas most Moscato has made from Muscat of Alexandria, it is over 75% Orange Muscat, and the balance is Muscat Canelli. These varieties are more challenging to grow and have smaller yields, but their aromas and flavors are more refined.
To make Electra Moscato, the free-run juice is fermented for more than a month at low temperature, after which it has chilled, sterile filtered, and bottled. This process preserves its delicate flavors and slight fizz. Ardison Phillips painted the angel on the label as a likeness of Allison Quady, the daughter of Andrew and Laurel Quady.
Quady White Electra Moscato pairs well with fresh fruit, salads, spicy Asian and Indian foods, burgers with sweet sauce, light desserts, blue skies, and fresh air. And with only 4.5% alcohol by volume, you can still play volleyball after the picnic. It makes sublime sangria and sorbet. To make sorbet: pour into a covered container, freeze overnight, spoon into chilled glassware. Enjoy!
