Old Vines

Wines made of vines greater than 40 years old. Old vines undergo physiological changes from youth and have root systems that sometimes dig many meters into the ground; all part of the reason that wine from old vines expresses greater levels of poise, refinement and nuance. For many, the traits of wine from old vines can be philosophically likened to the personality changes in humans throughout the different stages of life. In short, there is beauty (differing) in young and old, although old vines are more widely renowned as producing the greatest expressions of wine.
