At the Wine Butler we keep the acidity of our wines quite low. Additionally, we use 1/5th to 1/7th of the preservatives present in most LCBO wine. As a result our wine is drinkable quite young. However, we do recommend a minimum storage period of 2-3 months, as even a few months will bring a change to balance, texture and body that really lets the wine come into its own. For the very patient, aging and development will continue for as long as a full year of storage.
