Wine Serving Temperatures
When you are a wine lover, you may find that there is always a reason to know the exact wine serving temperatures of your favorite wines. Whether you are an expert or new to the world of wine; it is simple to get the serving temperatures of your wine mixed up. Fortunately, we have taken the time to provide you with some of the basics on wine serving temperatures.
The best serving temperature will all depend on the type of wine that you want to serve. Whether it is white or red wine; we have a tendency to serve our wines at the wrong temperatures, especially when we are in the United States. However, it is simple to correct this problem.
When you are serving white wines such as Cherin Blancs, Sauvignon Blancs, or Chardonnays, you should serve them around forty five degrees F (or 7 degrees C), if they are served much colder, it will detract from the full flavor and aromas that these wines can provide.
The next group of wines to serve would be the full-bodied wines such as Burgundies or Beaujolais which should be served at around fifty degrees F (or 10 degrees C). However, the last of the three groups is the red wine temperature. These red wines can include merlot, Zinfandel, Rhones, and Cabernet Sauvignon’s which should be served at around sixty degrees F (or fifteen degrees C).
If you are still confused at the perfect temperature for your wine, you can always search online for your wine’s specific serving temperature or ask your local liquor store.
