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
refermentation 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
