A wine should be served at just the right temperature to enjoy the most out of each and every drop. If the wine is served too hot, the alcohol will be accentuated. And served too cold, the flavours and aromas will fade, and in the case of red wine, the tannins will seem harsh.
So, what would the ideal experience be? Here are some guidelines:
DRY WHITE, ROSÉ & SPARKLING WINE:
We suggest that these wines are served between 5 and 10°C to preserve their fruitiness and show off their complexity. A chilled sparkling wine will keep the bubbles fine, rather than frothed.
FULL-BODIED RED WINE AND CAPE RUBY:
To have the optimum wine experience in this category, we suggest you serve these wine between 15 and 18°C. At this temperature, the tannins will be more elegant and play down the bitter components.
