Have you ever been caught off guard by a freezingly cold glass of wine? Or a red wine with an overwhelmingly alcohol-heavy taste?
If so, there’s a good chance your wine’s temperature is to blame.
Temperature plays a fundamental role in the moment of tasting, as the right temp can bring out primary, secondary and tertiary flavors, while the wrong temp can ruin them.
To guarantee an optimal tasting experience, as well the opportunity to put your wine knowledge on display, we’ve put together this guide to help you enjoy TRIO Perfect Blend wines to the fullest:
TRIO Merlot and TRIO Cabernet Sauvignon are best served at temperatures between 16-18 C (61-64 F). Red wine served below these temperatures can diminish aromas, while anything above can heighten the taste of alcohol, harm flavors and aromas, and take away from the wine’s many nuances.
TRIO Chardonnay, meanwhile, should be served between 8-10 C (46-50 F). Much like its red counterparts, white wine consumed over the recommended temperature can diminish its flavours against alcohol. Conversely, serving below 8 C can dull the wine’s texture, and thereby lessen the fresh and smooth flavours inherit to white wine.
Tips for keeping your wine at the ideal temperature:
A wine thermometer is a handy tool to precisely measure the temperature of your TRIO Wine selection when serving — not to mention you’ll come off as a pro to family and friends. Now you’re ready to enjoy. Cheers!
