Serving Temperature

Many people refrigerate their white wines prior to consumption. It is important however to avoid over-chilling, and especially storing it in the refrigerator for long periods. Both will deaden the flavour. The best way of serving white wine is to chill it as it is needed, in fact placing it in an ice bucket with ice and cold water for 20-30 minutes is sufficient. As the wine loses it’s chill, the real flavour will come to the fore.

Most people serve red wine at room temperature. In Australia, this may be too warm. The bottle should be cool to the touch, but not cold. The ideal temperature is that found in a ‘wine cellar’, between 15 to 18 degrees celsius. In fact, on a warm night, you will appreciate refrigerating the red wine for about half an hour prior to serving it.
