This fungus causes the grapes to dry out and increase their sugar content, concentration and complexity.
The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks or oak barrels, depending on the winery and desired style. The result is a luscious and sweet wine with rich aromas of dried fruit, honey, apricots and citrus.
