Yes ! We can enjoy a glass of red wine under the sun.
With this beautiful weather, it’s quite normal not to see a lot of red wine on our table. But, why don’t you change your habits? Indeed, some red wine can be a good alternative to rose or white. A few of them are more enjoyable when they are chilled. The heat can modify the taste of the wine. The wine become more acidic and you can feel more of the alcohol.
According to Matt Pridgen, (sommelier), wine is living. It changes according to the environment. The wine could be more tannic if the wine is served at around 18 °C. But some of them are better if they are served around 12 °C, which is normally the temperature of the cellar.
The less you have alcohol and tannins in wine, the more you will enjoy the wines served at 12 °C
