#LenzTipps: Drinking temperatures of the wines
The right drinking temperature is very important, because the wine must not be too warm and not too cold. Several factors play a role, such as the quality level of the wine.
A wine that is too cold is closed and generally rather restrained, while a wine that is too warm is alcoholic. Often, due to the warm wine, disturbing tones can be detected in the nose.
Ideal drinking temperatures:
Sparkling wine, Secco
simple white wines
rich, bouquet-rich white wines (late harvest, selection), summer wines
edelsweet wines (berry selection, ice wines, dried berry selection)
light to full-bodied red wines
rich, bouquet-rich red wines
- Serve the wine a little bit colder than too warm, as the wine in the glass heats up quickly.
- In winter, the white wines can be drunk a little warmer, while the red wines can be served cooler in summer.
- the younger and lighter the red wine. the cooler it can be served.
- If red wines is still clearly too cool, the caraping in a warm rinsed carafe helps.
