White Wine Serving Temperature

White wine served too cold will conceal its extra flavors for which you would have paid the extra money. For the opposite of red wine may be true that white wines can be served warm than too cold since when they are served too cold they will lose some of their characteristics.

When the white wine is served fewer than 45 °F surely they will lose their flavor and aroma. When white wines are served at a lower temperature their basic characteristics like fresh, fruity, and sweet taste will come out.

Most of us will prefer keeping our refrigerator temperature at 35-40°F so it is not advisable to drink the white wine directly from the refrigerator. Before drinking the white wine that is stored in the refrigerator you should keep the wine out of the refrigerator for at least 30 to 60 minutes to bring them to the right temperature. And an easy way to warm the wines is that you can cup your hands around the glass.

If you have stored the white wine at a room temperature then you have place the wine in a refrigerator or ice bucket for 30 to 60 minutes before serving.

Simple white wines like Sauvignon Blance, Chenin Blancs, and Vinho verdhe will decrease their flavors if they are served over chilled. And complex white wines like Riesling and Chardonnay will have their flavors destroyed when they are served over chilled.

But Champagne and sparkling wines can be served directly from the refrigerator.
