Try chilling these summer reds to about 13 - 16°C, or about 15 - 30 mins in the fridge. This will make a very pleasing and discernable difference on a sweltering day. When drinking reds in the summer, it's helpful to look for the following characteristics:

 

  • Lower alcohol is better, generally less than 13%
  • Lower oak and tannin levels as these traits tend to become amplified when chilled
