Bennett Kireker Explains About the Right Wine Serving Temperatures

Wine is regarded as one of the oldest beverages known to the mankind. In fact it offers some special health benefits to people as it contains no fat and zero cholesterol. Wine contains excellent anti- oxidant properties and this is why it is preferred not only by men but also women. Bennett Kireker has worked as a wine salesman for United Cellars, a company which is based in Auckland, New Zealand and is very much passionate about wine.

Tips from Bennett J Kireker about Wine Serving Temperatures

When it comes to wine serving temperature; there is an age- old saying that red wines should always be served at room temperature and white wines should be served chilled. However, this is not always true as the temperature at which the wine is served can affect the taste of wine vastly. It is important to keep in mind that serving a wine that is too chilled will cover its actual flavors while a wine that is too warm will seem flabby, dull, and hot with alcohol.

White Wine Serving Temperatures

White wine should always not be served straight from the refrigerator as this may not be great for all white wines. In fact certain comparatively simple white wines can have their flavors reduced by over chilling. And certain complex white wines can have their flavors destroyed by over chilling. So, as a good rule of thumb what you can do is remove a totally chilled bottle of white wine from refrigerator at least half an hour before you want to drink it. On the other hand, if you have a bottle at room temperature, place it in a refrigerator for a half an hour before taking it. Remember that as a cool wine starts to warm up it releases aromas that can make you wine drinking session all the more interesting. 

Red Wine Serving Temperatures

Drinking wine that is too warm is even more horrible than drinking it when it is too cold. So, serving the red wine at room temperature is certainly not the right thing to follow. Therefore, it is recommended to keep the red wine in the cellar just before serving or keep it in the freezer for at least 15 to 20 minutes before serving. The red wine bottle should feel slightly cool but not cold or warm. In case the red wine bottle has been over chilled then you can simply pour the wine in the glass and warm it up by using your hands around the glass. This will enhance the smell, taste and color of the wine and will make your wine drinking session truly amazing. 

Since the temperature of the wine plays such a significant role in the aroma and taste of the wine, it is important that you pay close attention to how it is stored and served.
