Quady Elysium Black Muscat

This is a dark, very sweet dessert wine made from the dark-skinned black Muscat grape. It is an intense wine, and went well with the Christmas pudding. This post will not do it justice, however, as I forgot to put it in the fridge before dinner, and had to do with a few minutes in the freezer. It wasn't chilled enough, and hence had a bit of an alcoholic heat to it, which overpowered any subtleties it might have had. Either way, it's worth a mention and I'll look out for this variety again.

This looks like an interesting winery actually. It's located in California, and they do a variety of sweet and fortified wines, including a sherry-style wine. Interesting...
