Why Is The Year a Wine Is Made So Important?

WHAT ARE THE BEST VINTAGES TO LOOK FOR?

Wine World, the preferred Liquor store of North Tonawanda and Tonawanda, our customers have come to depend on us to know the details about wine and best wine vintages so they can bring home a great wine every time.

Favorite “Go-To Bottles” are Always Dependable!

Some wines are not affected by vintage, others most certainly are.  For the most part, the wines we drink every day – the under $14 a bottle range are not really effected by vintage even if they have a vintage denoted somewhere on the bottle.  The wines are produced in an even style that really does not change from year to year.  These wines become your “favorite go-to” bottles; like 90+ Cellars, 19 Crimes, Mondavi Vintners Select, Apothic and more.  These wines are produced in a style you’ve come to enjoy and you expect them to stay relatively the same.

A vintage wine reflects grapes grown and harvested in a single year.  A vintage wine is one made from grapes from all, or mostly all, from the same year.  But, beyond that, what makes a good vintage?  It’s the weather.  Weather that is extreme, either too hot or cold,  too wet or too dry, will usually hurt the growing process.  As with all plants, every grape variety requires a particular climate and growing temperatures.  Severe weather stunts or harms this process and the quality of juice is effected.

“It Was A Very Good Year!”

This now sets the stage for what are some of the best vintages to look for.  There are charts for every  wine region and grape type.  To look for great vintage red wines out of California, look for 2015, 2013, 2012 or possible 2010 and 2008 if you can find it.   California Whites, look for  2015, 2014, 2013, 2012.

Some great wines with top vintages, here are a few selections we suggest:

Louis Martini Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Mount Peak Gravity 2014

Justin Isosceles 2013

Tensley Syrah 2014

Gary Farrel Russian River Chardonnay 2013

Meiomi Chardonnay 2015

Marimar “Christina” Russian River Pinot Noir 2008
