Comments by winemaker Jonathan Hunt.
In the 2012 vintage, we experienced healthy growth of the “noble” fungus botrytis, which intensified the lush fruit flavors of Vignoles. The result is a fiesta of flavor, with vibrant citrus and tropical fruit notes. I recommend enjoying it well chilled, either on its own or paired with Indian, Thai, Chinese and other hot and spicy cuisines. Cheers!
