As many varietals as there are to fit your palate
There are as many varietals of red wine as there are red grapes planted in all corners of the globe. The main types you will likely encounter include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, and Merlot, to name just a few. There are red blends, which are a combination of many different grapes, and there are single varietals, which are made with one type of grape. Apothic changes the game with their masterful creation of both types of red wine; pleasing as many different palates as there are red wine varieties.
Traditionally, red wine is served at room temperature, which is typically between 60-68°F (15-20°C). However, chilling it slightly can sometimes enhance its flavour and aroma.
Light-bodied red wines, such as a Red blend, can benefit from being served slightly chilled because chilling can help to bring out the fruity and floral notes. On the other hand, full-bodied red wines, such as Apothic Cabernet Sauvignon, are typically served at room temperature. Chilling these types of red wines can actually mask their flavours and make them taste flat.
So, should you chill your red wine? It is ultimately up to you! Apothic wines can be enjoyed both chilled and at room temperature, depending on the type of wine. Experimenting with different serving temperatures can be a fun way to discover new flavours and aromas in your favourite red wines. Cheers!
