Product Overview

The 2014 Grgich Hills Violetta Late Harvest is the winery's classically-produced late harvest wine which is the result of Botrytis Cinerea, a beneficial mold that evaporates moisture while concentrating the flavor in the berry but yielding very little juice when the grapes are pressed. Rich aromas of warm pineapple, baked pear, and cinnamon lead to a long, vibrant finish of honeysuckle and lily. Violetta is spectacular when paired with desserts that echo these flavors, such as fruit tarts, crème brûlée and rich cheeses, or serve it all by itself to end a special meal.

Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 14 months, French oak barrels, 50% new, 50% neutral

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"A blend of 46% Sauvignon Blanc, 37% Riesling and 17% Gewürztraminer—all left to develop botrytis on the vines—this wine shows a petrol character that's intense on the nose. The palate is viscous and rich in flavors of hazelnut, pineapple and honey. It winds its way to lingering, balanced finish," -VB, 12/31/18
