Springtime Serving Tips
In the spring season, the weather starts to heat. Temperatures are an important aspect of serving wines.
It would help if you drank your whites and roses after they had been removed from the fridge for approximately 15 minutes. It will enhance the flavor and add crispiness. For red wine, it should be kept in the fridge for approximately 30 mins before serving to enhance the floral flavors.
Please don’t put it in the refrigerator for a long time. Any over-chilled wine will lose its delicate tasting notes.
Here are a few more tips for picking the best white and red wines for this season:
There’s acidity in white wines, enhancing their refreshing and crisp qualities. It makes white wine go perfectly in the warm weather. When the weather is warmer, you should go for dry whites, light to medium-bodied. Wines such as sauvignon blanc, albariño, or pinot gris have a light and fresh taste, which would go perfectly with springy foods. These lighter whites should be consumed young as they have the most freshness and fruitiness.
A red wine can also be perfect for soaking spring days. This season, medium to lighter-bodied red wines are a good pair as they have higher acidity and lower tannin. Light reds can be served chilled to bring out the floral tones. Wines such as grenache, pinot noir, or tempranillo are excellent for enjoying the heat in the spring season.
Rather than always going to our same old favorites, take the opportunity this spring by changing the wine you drink to experience a wider range of varieties and pairings. As the weather starts to warm, our taste buds crave fresh and clean wines, wines that are light and simple. Popping open a bottle is always going to bring joy and celebration! Buy wine bottles for yourself or gift a bottle of wine on occasion.
