Leave it Alone!

One of the advantages of making more than you need ie. more than you consume (and give away of course) is that you have an opportunity to build up your 'cellar'. Thing is as the more mature stuff improves (and, oh boy, does it!) you find yourself reaching for the older stuff. For me this being 2010 (longest I've kept ever) of which a few boxes yet remain. But if I don't leave it alone it won't get to that magic triple vintage whereafter it reportedly enters decline. Avid followers will note that I am not a sulphiting fan and so it's interesting to note that there is no in-bottle degradation - in fact quite the opposite seems to be the case two years on...
