Product Overview

The 2016 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. Luscious, ripe aromas of sweet pear, candied pineapple, and ripe honeydew melon follow through on the palate with undertones of white flowers melded with balsamic notes and a hint of petrol. Accentuated by uplifting acidity, these dense, ripe fruit flavors beautifully balance the residual sugar. The finish is creamy and complex with a refreshing, lingering minerality. Violetta is spectacular when paired with desserts such as fruit tarts, creme brulee, and rich cheeses.
