Warmth



Hi wine drinkers!
Hope you are all enjoying lots of wine this Autumn?
Im having a difficult time getting my red wines up to a decent
temperature before I drink! The house is so cold!

Reds are ideal at about 20-30 degrees. They shouldn't be really cold
to the touch when you pick up the bottle, just normal. If necessary
to warm up before you drink then uncork and put near the stove to
gently heat up whilst you prepare a meal!
A warm wine will have a greater flavour and aroma on the nose.
Sometimes they have a subtle perfume which is only really detectable
when warm. Use the central heating and enjoy your red wines at the
right temp!

decanting with a candle under the bottle neck will do the trick too
