Received a case of this wine recently. Enjoyed a couple of bottles, but then noticed some discoloration in a couple of other bottles in case. This is normally a very clear white wine, and one bottle had a dark redish-brown color, another had a little lighter redish brown color. I was instructed by Wine Chateau via email to discard and issued a credit?(refund?) with no further explanation? Maybe it was old and beyond consume date; maybe was not sealed properly; maybe just bad wine from start? Lots of maybes. Maybe I wont be ordering this again. Maybe Wine Chateau could do a better job of communicating here? Can you give me reassurance of future orders? Was this just a rare situation?
I received a case of white wine recently. Is it customary to have different vintage years in the same case? I have heard whites do not hold up well over time and most to be consumed within 1-2 years. Most of the bottles in my case were vintage years 2007, some 2010. Is this wine ok considering it is already 5 years old?
