Trie: French term for sorting and harvesting the best botrytized grapes for dessert wines. In Sauternes, Barsac and other regions where sweet dessert wines are made, pickers will often make multiple tries, or passes, through the vineyard, harvesting only grapes that have been properly afflicted with the sugar-concentrating fungus Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot.
