Since I just wrote the review for the Red Electra, it would be a sin not to write the reviews for both the Electra and the Essencia, so here I am with the first one.

Years ago, while looking for some dessert wines, I came across two interesting releases, both being Orange Muscats from the same firm, but with different strengths, so I picked up both.

Electra (what a name for a wine folks), is the less alcoholic of the two, and has a very upbeat zest to it, that in some ways reminds you of a carbonated drink, but in a wine, though too heavy/viscuous to be mistaken for a sparkling wine. Upon drinking it, the wine itself flowed like silk on my tongue, and had the most wonderful orange flavoring to it; for those of you that don't know, I really don't like oranges at all. However, this wine had something special and unique to it, though it is challenged by its bigger sister, the Essencia.

Summarily, Electra is a perfect wine for occasions that don't involve pairing it with a heavy meal. It's perfect for fruit, salads (maybe even with meat, seafood or poultry in them), or as an after dinner drink, or even better paired with desserts, including chocolate.
