The best temperature for serving wine varies based on the type. Generally speaking, we often drink white wines too cold and red wines not cold enough.
Should be served at 43-47° (F)
Blush, Rose & White Wines
Should be served at 45° (F) 7°(C)
When colder, the aromas and flavors can be minimized along with your appreciation of the wine.
Full Bodied White/Light Reds
Full-Bodied high quality white wines like Sauternes & rich white burgundies along with light red wines like Beaujolais should be served at 50° (F) 10° (C)
You’ve probably heard that red wines should be served at “room” temperature, but that is actually referring to “cellar” temperature, which is often around 55° & perfect for storing wine.
Most red wines including Cabernet, Merlot, Bordeaux, Zinfandel, Rhones & Syrah/Shiraz should be served at 60° (F) 15° (C) preventing the unpleasant bite that alcohol can produce when served at normal “room” temperature.
