why do people call Huangjiu the aged wine?


We always call Huangjiu Aged Wine in many occasions. Once a friend asked me that why Huangjiu is called aged wine. However, It's rarely used in other kinds of wines. For this question, I consulted the experts of wine culture.

It is understood that the aged wine is not an exclusive name of Huangjiu. In fact, it is a general term for the wine with a long storage time. It generally refers to all kinds of aged high-quality wines, including the white spirits, red wine, Huangjiu, wine, sweet wine, whiskey, brandy, gin, vodka and so on. Only beer can not be called the aged wine because of the short shelf life.

Huangjiu, originated from China, is one of the oldest wines in the world. The famous varieties of Huangjiu include Shaoxing Jiafan Jiu, Fujian aged Jiu, Jiangxi Jiujiang Fenggang Jiu, Jiangsu Danyang Fenggang Jiu, Wuxi Huiquan Jiu, Guangdong pearl red wine, Shandong Jimo aged wine and so on. And Shaoxing Huangjiu with Chinese characteristics is recognized by the Chinese brewing industry as the most popular Huangjiu in the international and domestic markets.

why do people call Huangjiu aged wine? We should talk about the characteristics of Huangjiu firstly. At present, the Huangjiu sold on the market is generally aged more than 3 years. In the Huangjiu industry, there is a trade rule that the Huangjiu aged less than 3 years will not be sold. Qian bin, a provincial wine master and the director of Gu Yue Long Shan Quality and Technology Center said that the taste of the Huangjiu aged less than 3 years is not soft and the fragrance is not as mellow as the aged wine. Therefore, there is a saying that the flavor and taste of Huangjiu will be improved as the years roll on. It is worth mentioning that there is a lot of Huangjiu aged more than ten years in the central warehouse of Gu Yue Long Shan.

In Shaoxing, there are different names of wines made from glutinous rice. The shelf life of the home-made Huangjiu is generally short and the wine can be enjoyed just after brewing. Thus, the home-made Huangjiu is called the "new wine". And the boiled Huangjiu is less likely to deteriorate, and the flavor and taste will be improved as the years roll on if it is filled in the pottery jar. And the boiled Huangjiu which is filled in the pottery jar is called the [aged wine".
