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. If ripened to about 25 brix, it attains
a rose-like aroma, litchi and dark berry like flavor. This
rose-like aroma led us to name the wine Elysium, Greek for heaven.
Drinking this, you can almost feel you have fallen into a rose
garden and been transported to heaven.
Made in the same manner as Essensia, it is used, like Essensia
to either accompany or replace dessert. One favorite is to pour the
wine onto vanilla ice cream and serve Elysium Sundae with a glass
of Elysium. Great with vanilla, dark chocolate, blue cheeses, and
