Our Semillon-based dessert wine, Soul of the Vine, is fashioned knowingly utilizing Botrytis Cinerea (otherwise known as the "noble rot"). Rich and mellow, with a honey - caramel nose and subtle flavors of honeysuckle, pear and orange sherbet, this wine truly embodies the soul of the vine.
Soul of the Vine was fermented in stainless steel and then moved to neutral French oak for 13 months of aging prior to release. 50 cases were produced.
