Trained pickers hand select the botrytis infected berries exclusively. After a long sticky day buckets of furry looking raisins reach the cellar and are deposited into a tank press where they are soaked overnight. After pressing the next morning, the juice is clarified by settling and then fermented in a combination of new and used French Oak barrels.For the 2010 Inspiration, we also decided to add a small amount of botrytis affected Riesling. This botrytis infected noble late harvest has a brilliant golden appearance. It is intensely fragrant with hints of honey, raisins, marmalade and nuts penetrating the aroma. On the palate it is rich and sweet, but with sufficient acid to balance and it lingers forever.
Variety: Chenin Blanc 94%, Riesling 6%
Food Combination: Creamy desserts like Crème Brulee and Crème Caramel, but Grier likes it best with foie gras. Also try with blue vein cheeses, a match made in heaven; the rich, sweet character combines with the complementary nature of the cheese, Also Pates.
