Notes on Ageing

Posted October 23rd, 2015 | 0 Comments

Most red wines, when young, have obvious fruity aromas and some degree of astringency or "bite". With age, they will develop softer, gentler, more complex aromas and flavours. They become richer as the fruit mellows and the astringency of the tannins relax, giving the finished wine its body and character.

Many white wines also benefit with age.  High acid levels will soften over time, uncovering wonderful textures and flavours. Ageing your wine in an environment which helps preserve its finer qualities will pay big dividends, ensuring you have excellent wine to enjoy with friends and family this winter.
