Australian wine maker Palandri Wines has reignited the debate of over use-by dates for wine bottles.

Palandri chairman Darrel Jarvis believes that for young white wines in the A$8 to $12 bracket drink-by dates would guarantee quality.

He added that as use-by dates are given to other perishable products they should also apply to wine's most age-dependent varietals, many of which are meant to be drunk within six months of release.

"After six months you start to get bottle variation," Jarvis told the West Australian newspaper. "I am not trying to be provocative but the industry has to consider how to treat its wines as perishable product."
