Just gets more mature. nicer mouthfeel and smoother finish. no real perceptible change to tannins that are obvious but then I didn't overbake with oakDuring aging have you found the wine to lose tannins and get thinner than at bottling? Curious what changes you notice as the wine develops in the bottle.
Do you mean the wines you sampled were prepared by carbonic maceration, rather than yeast-based alcoholic fermentation?I thought, the Marquette was more of a Nouveau Style wine. This based on my experience as to how early some wineries begin to serve their Marquette wine. That, usually the summer season following the previous year's fall harvest. I drank the 2018 Marquette wine in the fall of 2019. It was good. Definitely Nouveau Style. Opened a Marquette 2018 in the fall of 2020. It improved a little bit, but not as expected. There is one bottle left of 2018 Marquette in my cellar(basement). Aging it longer might improve its profile. Maybe it's a grape wine that needs the full three years to develop, as are many other well-known grape wines. Marquette may be a Nouveau Style wine and one that improves with age. I dunno I'm still reading and experimenting with the grape. Time will tell.
The wine example in my original post was produced using yeast fermentation, bottled, and served within 5 - 6 months. Young and fruity.Do you mean the wines you sampled were prepared by carbonic maceration, rather than yeast-based alcoholic fermentation?
