Our quick guide to wine temperature

Posted: April 4, 2019

What are the ideal storage and serving temperatures for my wine?

STORAGE TEMPERATURE

All wine should be stored at around 13 degrees, and avoid temperatures over 18 degrees.

FOR SERVING REDS

A little under room temperature, ideally 16-18 degrees. Served to cold it will be tight and the flavours will not develop, but served too warm you will be overpowered by the tannins and alcohol.

FOR SERVING WHITES (AND ROSE)

Ideally 11-12 degrees. Overly cold white wine will accentuate acidity an the delicate structure and flavour notes will ‘close up’.
