How wine color changes with age

Discover with Uvamatis how wine color changes with age!

Color is the most obvious indicator of the slow oxidation of wine with age.
As white wines age, they often evolve from pale lemon or golden to amber and even brown. Vivid salmon-hued rosés can take on onion skin tones as they age. As reds develop, oxidation often moves them from the purple end of the spectrum toward tawny or brown hues.

While young reds can be opaque when held against a white background, mature reds often show a lighter color around the edges.
