Wine cabinet: five factors influencing wine storage
Wine has a certain life cycle, different life cycles are different. Wine is stored for a period of time before drinking, which is still of great benefit to the improvement of wine quality. Superior Bordeaux wine is suitable for long-term storage, and it will be at its peak after more than 20 years. Good white wine can also be stored for more than ten years, including Chardonnay, Riesling and other wine storage is very important. Once improperly preserved, it will have a great impact on the maturity, style and quality of wine. To extend the life cycle of wine is to extend the shelf life of wine. The first factor: temperature. The "life cycle" of good red wine is 10-20 years, and the storage period of especially good red wine can reach more than 50 years. The consumption of common table wine is the best in 5-6 years, because the color and aroma of the wine become lighter and lighter after a long time, the taste becomes more and more soft, the quality begins to decline, and there will be no drinking value beyond a certain period of time. But if it is not properly preserved, even the best wine will go bad quickly, let alone the ordinary wine. Take the storage of a bottle of second-class French winery in China as an example. If the air conditioner is not turned on at home in Shanghai, the wine will gradually go bad for at most one year; if the temperature is too high in Guangdong, the storage time of wine will be shorter. For wine to be stored for months or even years, it is necessary to find a suitable place to store, preferably a wine cellar; if there is no cellar condition, then use a professional wine cabinet to store, at least find a corner that is not easy to collide and the temperature is maintained at 10 degrees left and right. Wine can't be put in a place too cold. Too cold will make wine grow slowly. It will stay in the frozen state and no longer continue to evolve, which will lose the significance of wine storage. It is too hot, the wine is too mature, not rich and meticulous, which makes the red wine over oxidized or even deteriorated, because the delicate and complex wine taste needs a long time to develop. The ideal storage temperature is 10 ℃ - 14 ℃, the widest is 5 ℃ - 20 ℃. At the same time, the temperature change of the whole year should not exceed 5 ℃. At the same time, it is important to keep the temperature of wine at a constant level. It is better to store wine in a constant temperature environment of 20 ℃ than that of 10 ~ 18 ℃ every day. In order to treat wine well, please try to reduce or avoid drastic changes in temperature. Of course, small changes in temperature with seasons are acceptable. Take the storage of a bottle of second-class French super winery in China as an example. If the air-conditioner in Shanghai is not turned on, the wine will be gradually broken for at most one year; if the temperature is too high in Guangdong, the storage time of wine will be shorter.
