Why is Temperature so Important?
Experts believe the right temperature does more for your wine than the shape of your glass or letting it breathe. If red wine is too warm the alcohol dominates, and masks its subtle flavours. Chill a wine too far and the flavours are suppressed, the tannins become harsher and the acids too sharp. However, a wine lightly chilled to its ideal temperature reveals its delicious flavours, just as the winemaker intended.
