QUADY NV "DEVIATION" MUSCAT BLEND - CALIFORNIA DESSERT WINE - 375ML
By 27 August 2010- Posted on
A tasty new kind of aromatized dessert wine. The aromatics of the scented Geranium meld gracefully with the Orange Muscat, and the herbal minty taste of Damiana is a nice adjunct to the orange apricot tea Essensia flavors. Aromas of honeysuckle and white peppercorn are layered on an ethereal perfume of exotic flowers. Lively and fresh on the tongue this is a wine to linger over on those evenings when the lights are low and imaginations soar and dance.
FROM THE WINERY:
Deviation wine, incorporating new ingredients from the plant kingdom, delivers higher levels of sensory pleasure than can be done with grapes alone. Its name refers not only to a deviation from winemaking practice but also to the history of specialty winemaking at Quady and as homage to change.Mysteriously attractive aromatics, sweet but with a surprisingly dry finish, and ethno botanical significance (of its non grape botanicals) make Deviation a wine for romance. Living up to its name, it is different in composition, in sensory impact, and in its power to induce emotion and feeling from other wines.DOUBLE GOLD MEDAL: Tasters Guild Wine LoversGOLD MEDAL: Orange County Fair Pacific Rim Int'l Wine Comp San Diego National Wine CompSilver Medal: Amenti del Vino Dallas Morning News Int'l Wine Comp Los Angeles Int'l Wine Comp National Womens Wine Comp San Francisco Fair Int'l Vino Challenge Int'lSpecial Award: Beverage Testing Institute- 93pts Decanter Magazine- May 2007- Best Fortified Wine
