Chilling Things You Should Know About Red Wine And White Wine.

We just wanted to share some useful tips about the red wine and white wine in terms of chilling them. We’ll do a comparison and hope that these tips help you get the best savor from your choice of wine. Read along and you’ll see. We’ll start with RED WINE: • It should be served at room temperature. Why? The warmer it is, the more you will experience the aroma and flavor of it. • Room temperature is at an average of mid- to high-70’s. That’s why in many cases, if your temperature is at that level, then your wine may get too warm. • Let’s say your wine did get too warm. All you need to do is let it sit in an ice bucket for 10 minutes or let it spend about 45 minutes in the fridge. • There are other red wines like Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon that should be served at 15 to 18 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than other, softer wines. For WHITE WINE: • It should be served at cellar temperature. If you want, you can chill it in an ice bucket for a little, just to ensure that you get the right savor from it. • Room temperature is at an average of mid- to high-70’s and that’s usually too warm for white wine. • Take your wine out of the fridge about 30 minutes before you’re ready to serve it. You can also ice your white wine for about 20 minutes before you serve too. • Serve light, fruity wines such as French white wines and Alsace and Bordeaux at a temperature of 45 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
