Quady Electra 2013
Soft bubbles tickle the tongue, floating over flavors of sweet citrus, peach, and melon. A bouquet of wildflowers refreshes the senses. Electra is a Moscato d'Asti-style-picnic wine for drinking outside, in warm weather, chilled, or on the rocks. Pair it 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, you can still play volleyball after the picnic.
Quady Winery’s spirit of discovery began in 1980 with Essensia, a fortified sweet wine made with Orange Muscat. Essensia was a surprise to the wine industry and Andrew Quady became known as a muscat specialist. Three years later, Andrew made Elysium, a fortified sweet wine made solely with Black Muscat grapes. In 1990, Andrew developed low-alcohol versions of Essensia and Elysium, and called these wines Electra Moscato and Red Electra Moscato. The Electra Moscatos are Quady’s best selling wines. In 1999 Quady introduced Vya Vermouth with the idea that vermouth could be enjoyed like a fine wine: for aroma, balance, and complexity. Quady is also known for Starboard, a port-style wine made with Portuguese grapes; and for Palomino Fino, an amontillado-style sherry made with biodynamically grown Palomino Fino grapes.
