What rot?

Botrytis rot

This is 'common rot', the poor cousin to 'noble rot'. Noble rot imparts a special, highly sought after flavour in some wines. It's the same fungus (botrytis) but vastly different outcomes. Noble rot develops if the berries get infected but stay dry (needs good weather for sure) and instead of turning into this gooey purple mess they shrivel like raisins.
