What aging does to a wine - taste the difference yourself
从新酒到陈酿 – 你自己来体会其中之别

Saturday 21st August 2010, 3pm to 5pm
8月21日星期六下午3点到5点

Hunter Valley Semillon is described by international wine experts as "Australia’s wine gift to the world" – it is the highest quality, purest expression of dry white Semillon wine produced anywhere on the globe.

国际葡萄酒专家称猎人谷的赛美蓉是“澳大利亚献给世界葡萄酒的礼物”,彰显了全球最纯净的赛美蓉干白至高无上的品质。

The greatness of Hunter Semillon comes from its unique capacity to age. Some Classic unoaked examples of this variety can live to be enjoyed up to 20 plus years old. Hunter Semillon retains its zesty youthful fruit at beginning of life, then complexing with malty, honey and toast richness as it matures.

猎人谷赛美蓉的尊贵品质来自其独特的窖藏潜力。一些经典的没有经过橡木处理过的赛美蓉可以窖藏达20多年。这些年轻时水果味鲜明又清澈的赛美蓉,随着岁月的积累,慢慢演变成复杂的陈酿,伴之而来的是麦芽、蜂蜜、烤面的风味。

Vintage Collecting Tips
佳酿收藏小提示

Serious wine lovers normally buy a complete case rather than individual bottles and keep them for years to come, so that they can taste the wine over time to see how it's evolving. Collectors also trust full cases: they're more likely in better condition than individual bottles, which could be on the market because they're spoiled. For the same reason, you should never buy an eleven-bottle case—it's often a sign that the owner tried one bottle and found it to be not to the standard as expected.

喜爱葡萄酒的收藏爱好者经常买整箱而不是单瓶的酒,然后每过一段时间开一瓶慢慢品尝,细细体验这款酒的逐步演变。另外整箱买来的酒通常比单瓶的保存得好,单瓶变质的可能性大。永远不要收购1箱11瓶的酒,这很可能是物主尝过后觉得不好而想遗弃的东西。

If you do buy individual bottles, buy big ones. Large-format bottles are not only rare, but they may age the wine more slowly than the standard 750ml bottle, because of the low air-to-liquid ratio.

假如购买单瓶酒收藏,最好买容量大的,大瓶不但稀有,比起750ml还能延缓酒的成熟,因为空气对酒的比例较小。

Be suspicious if you're promised huge increases in price, unless the wine has a track record to support such claims.

不要轻信价格会大幅增长的承诺,除非该酒有这样的长久记录。
