Term Definition
Botrytis Cinera

Pronounced: Bott-rye-tuss

Aka 'Noble Rot'.

This rot is spread by damp, humid conditions. But, with the good conditions, this can be a positive version of rot: it takes the water from ripe grapes, so the grapes shrivel like raisins, and concentrates the sugars making the wines sweet. This also adds unique flavours and makes wonderful dessert wines.
