 Red Wine Serving Temperature
 
Red Wine Serving Temperature


A common misconception about the red wine is that it should be served at room temperature. This does not make any sense since depending upon the climatic changes and geography the temperature of the room changes accordingly.

It is always advisable to serve the red wine at a temperature little colder than its normal temperature. Since wine gets warmer easily than cooling it.

Serving red wine in a warmer temperature affects its freshness and many of its characteristic like aroma and flavor are lost.

When the red wine is served at a temperature of above 65F the wine will impart lot of its alcohol contents affecting the desirable flavor and taste.

It is handy to warm the red wine in the glass than putting the bottle of red wine in the refrigerator or ice bucket. The other easy way to warm the wine is that to roll the glass of wine between your hands.

In order to reach the proper wine serving temperature it is important that you have the correct type of storage unit in the house which should be maintained at a constant temperature of about 55-60F.

If you have stored the red wine in a room temperature then you have to place it in a refrigerator or ice bucket for about 30 to 60 minutes before serving. If little water is added with ice the wine could more quickly.
Depending on the type of red wine you have planned to serve the wine at a temperature of about 60-65F here is the list for you.

Beajoluais - light fruity red wine = 55F
Chinate. Pinot Noir, Zinfandel - medium bodied red wines = 60F
Bordeaux, Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz - full bodied red wines = 63-65F

And here are some guidelines that are useful for serving different types of red wines.

Red Sparking Wines - 45F
Sweeter Red Wines - 45F
Lighter Bodied Red Wines - 60F
Fuller Bodied Red Wines - 65F
