The science of wine is a weird science: part technical skill, part mythical alchemy. The soil that bears the vine is a composite of rock, weather, climate, and microrganism, bringing to bear notes and echoes, sense memories of a particular place and growing season. Moths pollinate the blossoms under cover of darkness. The fruit grows. Skins acquire an almanac of the elements—mineral, sun, rain and spring water that has traveled underground aquifers through ancient lava flows. When finally night cools and the fruit is full to bursting, it is time for crush. The concert of microbiology, zymology, and chronology, time itself lending a hand to the crafting of fine wine.
