Málaga Food News: Drinks – Chilling Reds this Summer
Posted By: Málaga Food Guide Team – Málaga Province
Most red wines don’t match the lighter food of summer, but Terry Kirby writing on the Indy/Life page, says chilling reds in warm weather helps to sharpen flavours and preserve structure of the wine. However, warm red´s can mute the flavours and bizarrely seem to be more alcoholic.
“…enjoy a cool glass of red during the hot summer months”


Although generally it’s not recommended to chill grapes or wines at the heavier end of the spectrum, such as Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, or oaky, aged Riojas, even half an hour in the fridge door can liven some wines up.

There are no hard and fast rules as to which red´s prosper in the chiller it is really personal taste but try with light red´s to start with, it could be a matter of trial error or you hit on the right one first time.
