"Dolce stands as the pinnacle, where Mother Nature and craftsmanship combine to define luxury through a wine capable of flirting with your emotions like no other. " ~ WinemakerCue another unforgettable Dolce by Far Niente Late Harvest White dessert wine. Forget dinner; we could just sit and sip this liquid gold all by itself. This Dolce has gorgeous fruit from lemon to pineapple and peach flavors, vanilla and buttered toast, as well as honey and caramel, all beautifully balanced by perfect acidity. Our mouths are watering already for this top notch late harvest treasure which Wine Enthusiast lovingly calls "one of the greatest sweet California wines in memory". It pairs amazingly well with blue, goat and salty cheeses, nuts and nut desserts, fruit desserts, foie gras (much like its friend Sauternes) and custard dishes. Our first choice is pignoli (pine nut) torta with marsala-poached autumn fruit. The two are about as close to perfection as you can get. A real live warm lemon zabaglione is to-die-for delicious too. A simple choice which still showcases the many complex and delicious layers of "one of California's greatest white dessert wines" is vanilla-poached, then broiled pineapple. If savory is your preference, then make it a mature, room temperature French Roquefort cheese. The fantastic sweetness and stupendous fruit of the wine opposite the minerally salt of the cheese...
Winery: "Dolce embraces a deceptively simple philosophy: the pursuit of perfection in the art of late harvest winemaking. Created in 1985 by the partners of Far Niente, its existence is the result of overcoming remarkable adversity and developing expertise where no one else in the U.S. had it. Dolce stands as the pinnacle, where Mother Nature and craftsmanship combine to define luxury through a wine capable of flirting with your emotions like no other.
With a classic blend of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Dolce is the only American winery dedicated to producing a single late harvest wine. Dolce has brought forth a wine in every vintage, yet in small, unpredictable quantities; witness to the incredible difficulties presented every year in the effort to make Dolce.
Dolce is an extraordinary wine bred from a combination of sunshine, soil, fog, expertise and dedication; a wondrous luxury, limited by nature to always being a gift of absurd rarity."
