CELLARING TERMS (for cool cellar conditions, not above 20°C).
P = Past its best  D = Drink Now

Our wines can be enjoyed young, or left to develop into complex aged styles.  Please note recommended drinking times are a guide only.

Cellaring times can vary slightly depending on the vintage, personal taste, storage conditions and, of course your patience.  When cellaring the wine, it is highly recommended you have adequate storage conditions as outlined.  Alternatively, the procedure of decanting and aerating will maximise your enjoyment in the short term (See Storage + Serving ).
