Learn how to open and serve a bottle of wine will enjoy the experience memorable broth.
The service of wine has some basic elements of concern, including its temperature and the opening of the bottle, allowing it to breathe.
The temperature of white wine
The temperature of the wine when you serve is essential. White wines should be served cold, which can be achieved by placing them in one or two hours in the refrigerator before serving. This will allow the temperature drops enough. The white wines are served cold because of their high acidity levels, which are moderated when cooled.
It is important to make sure not to store the wine in the fridge, however, as this can destroy the flavor. If you do not have enough time before serving, you can place the wine in a bucket of ice water to cool.
Red wines should be served below room temperature
Red wines are served differently. Can be refrigerated thirty to forty-five minutes. Well be at a temperature somewhat lower than room temperature. Red wines are served at a temperature slightly cooler because it slows down the evaporation process, which improves the aroma and taste of wine. However, when served at a temperature too low, take a bitter taste.
If red wine is too cold, there are several remedies for this situation. You can try to pour the contents of the bottle in a jar hot or warm vessels. If the wine is really cold, you can use the microwave, but carefully, since wine is not cooked well. Must remain in the microwave for fifteen or twenty seconds at most.
Open the bottle of wine
When the wine has the right temperature, is ready to be opened. You must first remove the foil around the cork. This can be done with a sharp knife, although most of the corkscrew is equipped with this type of accessory. It is important to ensure that there are no irregular pieces, since the foil can be very thin and sharp.
Then remove the cork with the corkscrew. If there are problems with the cork, as a last resort, you can push and wrap it around the bottle. Then pour the wine into a pitcher, using a fine filter coffee as to ensure that no piece of cork in the vessels appear damaged.
With sparkling wine or champagne should be more careful. These bottles are opened by first removing the metal shield, using a spoon to achieve this goal because it is much easier than with your fingers and nails. Then you need to push out the cork being careful not to hurt anyone with it. Do not shake the bottle in the process, or instant contact with the outside would result in an eruption of wine.
You can choose to allow red wine to oxygenate properly putting them into a decanter after opening.
The ideal glass for serving wine
The following will be choosing wine glasses . The most common of the glass is tulip-shaped, due to its wide bowl and narrow top with long stem. This makes it ideal for a glass swirling, without fear of spilling with movement. The narrow top also facilitates uptake of the fragrance of wine. A long stem is recommended because it prevents any change in temperature. Using this type of glass is usually acceptable for reds and whites.
There is a new variety of wine glasses available without stems. They sit on the bowl of the cup. Allow the wine to breathe wonderfully during consumption and intensify the flavor considerably. Can cause the drinker leave his fingerprints on the glass, and modify the temperature with constant handling, but the choice is personal.
Most importantly, make sure to fill the cups halfway, especially since most of the vessels used are considerably large. This allows for good oxygenation of the wine and allows it to be agitated.
