The pre­mium do­mes­tic ap­pli­ance man­u­fac­turer, Miele un­der­stands the im­por­tance of storing your wine cor­rectly. They of­fer a range of Wine Con­di­tion­ing Units from built-in and built-un­der to free­stand­ing and com­pact to help keep all types of wines and cham­pagnes dis­played and stored in op­ti­mum con­di­tion, ready to be en­joyed. All Miele Wine Con­di­tion­ing Units are de­signed for the per­fect storing and dis­play­ing of fine wines but the free­stand­ing KWT 6834 SGS Wine Con­di­tioner Unit with Som­me­lier Set will be of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to read­ers of De­can­ter as it in­cludes a num­ber of fea­tures for the wine afi­cionado.

The Som­me­lier Set

Stylish and prac­ti­cal, the set com­prises a glass holder and two de­cant­ing racks mak­ing it pos­si­ble to de­cant wine in the con­di­tioner. There is an ac­ces­sory box for storing a som­me­lier knife, corkscrews and chalk. For added con­ve­nience, the Con­vi­noBox will store any open bot­tles in the best con­di­tion to en­joy later.

Three tem­per­a­ture zones

Miele’s one de­gree tem­per­a­ture ac­cu­racy and sep­a­rate zones al­lows three dif­fer­ent types of wine such as red wine, white wine and cham­pagne to be all kept at the same time in their op­ti­mum con­di­tions.

Flex­iFrame sys­tem

This al­lows users to ad­just the beech wood racks per­fectly to suit dif­fer­ent types and sizes of bot­tles whilst a slight gra­di­ent on the shelves en­sures con­stant con­tact be­tween the cork and wine to keep the cork in good con­di­tion. With a ca­pac­ity of up to 178 bot­tles, you can ad­just the beech wood racks to suit dif­fer­ent types and sizes of bot­tles in­clud­ing Mag­nums.

Other fea­tures

El­e­gant tinted glass doors pre­vent dam­age caused by UV rays, such as pre­ma­ture aging. This al­lows the ap­pli­ance to be po­si­tioned any­where in your home. Flush LED light­ing al­lows you to see your col­lec­tion with­out heat­ing the sur­round­ing air and the Anti-Vi­bra­tion Mo­tor pre­vents wine from be­ing dis­turbed which is es­sen­tial for the ma­tur­ing process.

Miele Wine Con­di­tion­ing Units of­fer 70% hu­mid­ity to pre­vent corks from dry­ing out and in­clude an Ac­tive AirClean fil­ter, which uses ac­tive char­coal fil­ters and chi­tosan (a nat­u­ral prod­uct) to pro­tect wines from un­pleas­ant odours which could im­pair the qual­ity.

Miele spoke to Wan­der­lust Wines about their wine rec­om­men­da­tions for the au­tumn.

Wan­der­lust Wines was set up to of­fer sus­tain­able, qual­ity wine from small pro­duc­ers. The team seek out new wines, new re­gions and new styles and spe­cialise in im­port­ing sus­tain­ably farmed wines, of­ten Or­ganic and Bio­dy­namic-cer­ti­fied. The Wan­der­lust team nom­i­nates their top three ar­ti­san red wines for the au­tumn and how best to en­joy them.

Q What and why are your top three ar­ti­san red wines that can be en­joyed in the au­tumn? And how best to en­joy them – for ex­am­ple how long should they be de­canted for?

Vac­queyras Castil­lion, Fon­taine du Clos This is rich and pow­er­ful but will har­monise per­fectly with the mel­low com­fort food of au­tumn. Serve at 15 de­grees and de­cant for an hour to al­low its com­plex­ity to show.

Horse Heaven Hills Caber­net, Wash­ing­ton State

This is Caber­net with lots of en­ergy and ripeness, bal­anced by lovely fresh acid­ity.

Musso, Bar­baresco, Cru Pora

The ul­ti­mate wine to go with the au­tum­nal feast of mush­rooms, game and truf­fles. Deeply com­plex and light as a light as a feather, per­fect when served at 17 de­grees.

Q What ad­vice would you give to read­ers who wish to cu­rate a col­lec­tion of wine?

A Whilst it al­ways about per­sonal taste, one rec­om­men­da­tion I would give is to have a mix of your all-time favourite wines of var­i­ous vin­tages and to bal­ance those with wines that you are pre­pared to open with­out hav­ing to wait for a spe­cial oc­ca­sion.
