What temperature would you say the room you’re sitting in right now is? What was it in July? Unless you have the heat pump running 24/7 year round, it’s probably safe to say there’s quite a large difference.

The common rule of thumb for enjoying red wine is always to have it at ‘room temperature.’ This disregards season

and location, making the idea of ‘room temperature’ so nebulous as to be almost useless.

With summer in full swing, what this like-ly means is that ‘room temperature’ is too warm for a lot of red wines to be best enjoyed. For many of us that just means we leave them on the rack and reach for the rosé or whites, but this doesn't have to be the case.

The solution is an obvious one, even if on the surface it may seem sacrilegious – just put the bottle in the fridge.

The idea is by no means new in certain parts of the world, and is catching on here at many bars and restaurants. Some wineries

even make their intentions clear by putting ‘Chilled Red’ right on the label.

Not all red wines are created equally though, and that does mean some will suit chilling more than others. Oaky, tannic wines like many Cabernets, Merlot or Shiraz may end up tasting metallic, astringent or neutral.

Instead, try lighter, more fruit forward options. Gamay, or Beaujolais as it’s often labelled, is perfectly suited. Pinot Noir and some Grenache and Malbec will work well, tasting fruitier, juicier and more refreshing.

Don’t go overboard though; experiment with what you like, of course, but the key word, really, is chilled rather than cold. As with some white wines (Chardonnay in particular) over chilling will mute both nose and taste.

Vignerons Des Pierre Dorees
Beaujolais La Rose

Made from Gamay Noir off vines with an average age of 40 years, grown on sandy granite and clay soils. This saw semi-carbonic maceration, around 25%, with the rest of the fruit treated to standard red wine production. Honest, well made, exceptional value.
