2016 Soul of the Vine
Often getting the proper amount of botrytis cinerea, otherwise known as the “noble rot,” on grapes is a roller coaster ride of successes and failures, with the latter being more common. The thrill of getting it right is enough to keep us trying, so we continue to make just a small amount of our Soul of the Vine each year from our Estate grown Semillon fruit.
Our Semillon based dessert wine, Soul of the Vine, is fashioned knowingly utilizing Botrytis Cinerea. 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.
