Heat: Doubly worth defeating

Most wine drinkers believe they protect their bottles from heat by storing within their home or refrigerator. However, even wine stored inside these places can suffer from temperature swings —for example if the sun shines on a wine rack for part of each day. The wine may continuously warm up and cool down, spoiling your wine in the process. Temperature can also be the enemy of the enjoyment of wine. You might be surprised what "too high" means when it comes to serving temperature. Today’s normal room temperature of 70-plus degrees is too warm for reds. Only at cooler serving temperatures, typically in the low to mid 60s, will the flavor of red wine be balanced.

How Sub-Zero helps you enjoy wine more

A Tasting Tip from Eddie Osterland, Master Sommelier

How do you keep your balance? Stay cool. In wine, the term “balance” refers to the equilibrium of wine’s three main flavor elements: sourness, sweetness, and bitterness. Have you ever tasted a good red wine that had a harsh alcohol “bite”? It was too warm. Sweetness, crucial to balancing acidic bite, is accentuated by chilling. In fact, the alcohol actually contributes pleasingly to a wine’s sweetness — if it’s cool enough. Most red wines have ideal balance at around 65°F.

To do right by your wines (and by your guests), make sure wines are stored at steady temperatures. Chill reds into the high 50s or low 60s. By the time you open, decant, and pour, the wine will have reached the ideal temperature for enjoyment.
