Perfect Temperature for Wine Storage
The most important element for affecting the wines’ tasting is temperature, because wines are very sensitive to fluctuation of temperature. It’s known that perfect temperature would make wonderful wines. Because low temperature would decrease wine flavor, however, high temperature would lose fragrant fruit. Ideal temperature range of long term wine storage would be from 11-12℃.
If you drink wines at home, please be familiar with the “20-min” principle. If it’s a white wine, please put it into fridge half day in advance and take it out 20 mins before lunch/dinner. Then the temperature would be around 10℃ when you drink it. If it’s a red wine, then the temperature would be around 16℃.
