Chilling Red Wine
Now the summer is here, how many of you are chilling your Reds. I don't mean cold but just 20-30 minutes in the fridge. Lighter reds are better for this Pinot's, Beaujolais and Italian Chianti's to name a few definitely benefit from some chilling.
Even the heavier more tannic Cabs and Shiraz's can benefit from some chilling perhaps 10 minutes or so but not any longer.
On a recent visit to Spain a lot of the bars we frequented had bottles of red in iced water and I must say they were refreshing especially the Bierzo's and Rioja's.
