STORE AND SERVE WINE
Daniel Primack of wine storage experts EuroCave on how to perfect your plonk 1/ Turn out the lights You don’t need to keep wine under screw cap lying down like wine under cork. All other bottles should be stored
in a dark, 12°C storage environment. 2/ Score the perfect ten When it comes to white and rosé, the more complex and finer the wine the nearer to 10°C you should serve it, but it’s down to personal preference really.
3/ Stay cool Wine stored below 10°C is prevented from maturing and improving. Wine recovered from the Titanic was almost
as fresh as the day it was bottled. 4/ Avoid UV UV light breaks down the wine, ruining the colour and taste. That includes sunlight, but also fluorescent tube lighting. 5/ Use classy glass The glass you drink from affects wine’s flavour. Glasses should be thin
and light, and curve inwards at the top.
