Name: Schwaesdall Orange Muscat Port
Origin:Southern California
Price: $21.00
Year: 2004



Short intro from the wine maker about the wine:
Floral with lime and tangerine up front, berries on the nose with black cherries on the palate and overtones of leather on the finish
Review:
Surprisingly, as sweet as this was, I was able to taste the leather and black cherries on the finish, but I was initially assaulted by nothing but sweet… completely missed the lime… Did smell faintly of mandarin or tangerine…
Would you buy again?:
Probably not, I am not a big fan of port to begin with.
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes:
I served this with Mission figs brushed with Balsamic and Italian White Truffle oil stuffed with Chevrie spiked Mascarpone cheese and sprinkled with cinnamon. (Excellent pairing)
I can easily see this being reduced in a pan sauce and poured over light meats or even fish like flounder.

Oh, I actually like leather finish on my wine.... I am just not use to it in a white, course I am also not use to White port... Most port is red...
This was just an unusual wine/port Smile

Leather is usually the province of Pinot Noir and Syrah/Shiraz... Maybe a Zin or 2 and ports

It's ALL good Babs... Wink

Hey Shane.....you gave me a great idea...I used a bit of my orange muscato to deglaze my pan after sauteing my dinner. then I added some lemon juice and let it all reduce down. YUM!!! the muscato complemented the sweetness of the sauteed onions and at the same time complimented the hint of lemon that was left. Thanks Smile

I'll post my review of my bottle soon.

In the entire state of PA there was only ONE orange muscat available... they carry a total of 4, 3 from Quady winery plus one more... but in the entire state only Essensia was in stock in any state store, in the whole state!

I'll post the review later. =)

Name: Electra Orange Muscata
Price: about $16.00
Year: 2008



Short intro from the wine maker about the wine: In 1990, we decided to produce a new type of dessert wine, light, delicate and very refreshing. We tasted Orange Muscat grape juice as it was turning into wine. When the juice was just on the verge - halfway between wine and grape juice, a small test batch was bottled. The wine tasted wonderful, but the alcohol was only 4% (most wines are at least 12%). The wine was bottled using sterile filtration to prevent re-fermentation and the new creation named Electra after the electric like texture one notices on the tip of the tongue. This is a picnic wine, light delicate and refreshing, a breath of springtime, a bouquet of flowers with the taste of peach and melon. Electra goes well with spicy picnic foods, salads, pastas, and dessert.

Review: well...I was HIGHLY disappointed in the fact that it was ONLY 4% alcohol LOL. seriously when i read that i was all...awwww....crap. but I did enjoy the flavor. It was sweet but not as sweet as a riesling. it reminded me of white grape juice. I tasted a hint of other fruits....strawberry, peach...i dunno....but it really was refreshing.
Would you buy again?: maybe if i wanted something refreshing without a buzz LOL
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: I didn't really pair it with anything in particular. its just so hot out, anything would be refreshing, ya know
