Black Muscat, another under appreciated muscat variety, is known in Europe as a table grape variety, Muscat Hamburg, one of the very few black skinned muscats. When well ripened , it attains a rose-like aroma and lychee 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. The most fantastic deep magenta color ever seen in Elysium is due in part to new vineyard practices of excessive leaf pulling and cane cutting on the north side of the vineyards. This practice increases the sunlight underneath the canopy, also adding to more of a red fruit and litchi aroma then in the past years.
