Wine Serving Temperature

Spain is an absolute paradise for wine drinkers but there are some flies in the ointment. One of my biggest gripes is the temperature many places serve the red wine, which is usually too chilled for me. 14c is quite normal here and recommended by some bodegas.

Personally I find red wine loses it flavour at colder temperatures. Mind you this could sometime be because they’ve just opened the bottle and it hasn’t had time to air. I just don’t have the patience to sit and wait the 30 to 60 minutes it usually takes for the wine to decant properly and get to the temperature I like.

Anyway it turns out Winefolly.com agree with me and say the Spanish reds should be served at 17c to 21c. I knew I liked those guys. We’re definitely on the same wavelength.
