Concentrated Elegance: Botrytis causes grapes to partially dehydrate, concentrating their sugars, flavors, and aromatic compounds. This natural process gives our wines unparalleled elegance and complexity.
Balanced Sweetness: Unlike adding sugar to grapes, Botrytis sweetens grapes naturally. This results in a balanced sweetness that harmonizes with the grape's acidity, creating wines that dance on your palate.
Flavor Alchemy: The development of Botrytis introduces new and intriguing flavor profiles, from honeyed notes to hints of apricot and marmalade, making each bottle a journey of discovery.
Minimal Intervention: Botrytis is a testament to minimal intervention winemaking, as it relies on the right conditions – morning mists and warm afternoons – rather than additives or manipulation.
Terroir Reflection: Botrytis, like a fingerprint, is unique to each vineyard and region, allowing us to capture and express the distinctive terroir in every bottle.
Natural Preservation: Botrytis often requires fewer sulfites due to its preserving effect, aligning perfectly with our commitment to minimal additives.
In the world of natural winemaking, Botrytis is more than a fungus; it's an essential partner in crafting wines that showcase the beauty and complexity of nature.
