Gavalas Winery Vinsanto

Produced from Assyrtiko, Aidani, and Athini, this is arguably the best Greek dessert wine I’ve had the pleasure of tasting.

The grapes for this bottling are left on the vines late into the harvest season to attain an optimal level of ripeness – and, thus, an optimal level of sugar. The longer a grape stays on the vine, the more sugar it develops. Many dessert wines are made with grapes picked very late in the harvest, almost at the time when frost sets in.

Next, the grapes for the vinsanto are dried in the sun before being pressed and vinified. This concentrates the flavor and sugars, and upon tasting, one can certainly pick up on the sweet raisin flavors imparted by this process. Honey, botanicals, caramel, vanilla, and a sweet nuttiness are all on the palate here in a most pleasing symphony of glory (for those with a penchant for dessert wines).

A small glass of this as dessert, or with dessert, will kick your decadence up a notch.
