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.
The wine has an almost sticky sweet essence of grape sugar, with flavors of over-ripe pears and peaches, apricots, and creamy, buttery flavors. Honey and honeysuckle aromas delight the nose. This is the consumate dessert wine for all occasions. The wine is packaged in a 375ml bottle.
