Why Wine Needs To Be Stored And Aged

Actually, only about 10% of the wine in the world needs to be aged, the rest is meant for immediate consumption. But there is a reason that 10% benefits from being aged properly in the climate controlled environment. The combination of acid, tannin, alcohol and fruit make wine the most intricate and complex of beverages. Many wines are aged in oak which also impart certain characteristics to wine. When aged in the proper climate, these wines gain complexity in terms of aromas, flavors, texture and overall enjoyment like nothing else can. They also gain value as an investment as the wine auction industry is larger than ever. Even if you do not have any wines that are ageworthy, keeping wine at the right serving temperature is extremely important in the overall enjoyment. There is nothing worse than drinking a wine that is too warm. So whether you are aging your wine, or just enjoying it as is, storing your wines in a wine refrigerator is the best way to enhance your overall experience.
