Be aware that our wines can ‘go into a tunnel’ somewhere between six months and two years after release. During this time the wine can be quite unrewarding, but be patient because it can blossom later and confound earlier impressions and predictions. A second dip can occur between 4 & 6 years when the wine can start to look tired then may well emerge looking refreshed and in an interesting new phase for the next few years. It can be worth opening and even decanting them a few hours before serving – particularly the reds.
(Note: Wines marked by a * have been released in 375mL and 750mL bottles and in these instances the recorded status is for the 375mL version. Full bottles of the same wine can be expected to age more slowly. Botrytis wines can also be more sensitive to warmer conditions, so it is possible to get bigger variations in wines from different cellars.)
