Cellaring Guide

Stonecroft wines evolve in the bottle and so cellaring the wines can be a rewarding experience. It is difficult to know how long to keep a wine. If possible, purchase a case of wine and then open one bottle to see how the wine is developing. Below is a rough guide showing what stage the wines might be currently be at. It is also worth remembering that wines can go through a dip a couple of years after bottling and then pick up again later on.

1. Leave if you can, but will be satisfying
2. Fine now – but will continue to improve
3. Drinking well
4. Don’t delay too long
5. Too late
