Winemaker's Notes

Foggy, drizzly mornings and warm afternoons in Knight's Valley helped encourage the noble rot, botrytis, to set in. To encourage the mold growth, the overhead sprinkler system was turned on. Botrytis concentrates the sugars and acid and shrinks the yield. What's left is an intense, thick, raisiny soup of flavors that is well-balanced and smooth.
