Cellar Selection is a designation for wines or beers that our tasting
panels feel will improve with proper aging in climate-controlled
conditions, like a wine cellar or basement.
red wine, is usually because its tannins are too firm or coarse at
present, however there are enough flavor and structural elements to
emerge and refine over time as the tannins precipitate out of the wine
and settle as sediment. For white wines, sugar and acidity
are the key factors and many substantial dessert and sparkling wines,
like Eisweins, Sauternes, and Champagnes, can benefit from aging—their
flavors becoming more integrated and secondary or tertiary nutty,
yeast-driven flavors emerging. Certain higher-acid white wines like
Rieslings and Gruner Veltliners can also develop many interesting
age-induced characteristics, in particular an amplification of mineral
and “diesel” notes.
