Non-Specified Vintage (NSV) is a term used to describe wine that does not carry a specific vintage year. NSV wines are often blends of different vintages, and they are made to achieve a consistent style and taste profile year after year.
NSV wines are commonly produced by winemakers who want to maintain the same flavor and aroma profiles in their wines, regardless of the variations in weather and grape harvest conditions from one year to the next. In addition, NSV wines are often made by blending the best grapes from different vineyards or regions to create a wine that showcases the best qualities of each.
One of the most well-known examples of NSV wines is Champagne, which is typically a blend of wines from different vintages. While many wine enthusiasts prefer to drink vintage-specific wines, NSV wines offer a reliable and consistent flavor profile that can be enjoyed year after year.
