Harvey Norman presents: The ideal way to cellar wine
Even when in a bottle, wine is living: constantly ageing, evolving and changing. Some wines are ‘drink now’ propositions, best enjoyed upon their release, some need careful cellaring so their acids and tannins settle, while others develop beguiling secondary characters over years that accentuate their appeal and their value.
It really is important to store wine correctly to ensure you can enjoy your delicious vinous offerings at their best. To do so, just follow the four golden rules.
Maintaining a constant cool temperature is paramount. Wine dislikes fluctuation on the Celsius scale – temperatures between 12-14ºC are ideal.
Keep them away from direct light. Not only does it heat wine, but also causes changes chemically. This is the reason why red wine, which usually gets better with age, is in darker bottles.
Wine dislikes change in humidity almost as much as it dislikes change in temperature. A level of about 50 per cent is preferred so corks don’t dry out and cause oxidisation.
Constant movement, even small tremors, can disturb wine and disrupt its ageing process. It likes to be laid down and preferably not near a busy thoroughfare or under the stairs.
Keeping it cool
The most effective way to store your wine is in a wine cabinet. With a huge range of styles, sizes and price points, there is a wine cabinet to fit every need and budget, and they’re as sleek and fashionable as they are functional. From an under bench cabinet for your kitchen, a taller capacity unit for home or business, or a walk-in model for a dedicated cellar, there is a wine cabinet that will fit seamlessly into your life, with capacities from 20 to 4000 bottles.
As a dedicated wine enthusiast you can’t trust the safety of your precious and much loved wine collection to just any old fridge. Give it the perfect home and the security it really deserves with a Husky Vino Pro wine cabinet.
