5 Food Storage

Drawers

The drawers should only be removed for servicing by a trained and certified repair personal.

Top Storage Bin

When opening or closing the crisper, pull or push slowly and carefully. If the crisper is pulled out too far or pushed in too hard, it could come out all the way and possibly cause product damage or personal injury.

Other Models

Crisper

Your models may have a lower crisper drawer for storage.

To open, grasp the crisper handle and slowly pull out to access the drawer contents. The crisper may be completely removed for cleaning.

If the drawer is pulled out too far, it will come out of the cabinet, and may be damaged by falling.

Grasp the bin handle and slide backward to access the contents below. The bin may be completely removed for cleaning once it is slid forward, making sure it clears the guides on each side of the drawer. Then lift straight up. If heavy items are stored in bin, push front of bin down slightly while sliding. Slide bin forward, especially with heavy items, to ensure that drawer closes completely.

Crisper

Looking Behind the Label

To most, wine is a delicious mystery. We purchase it, uncork it, and savor its taste and beauty. But there is so much more to true wine appreciation. Many secrets are simply too good to keep bottled up.

Wine Selections Suggestions

Selecting the right wine for the right occasion can sometimes be a seemingly awkward or difficult task for the beginning wine enthusiast. We would therefore like to present you with a few suggestions which may provide a little more confidence and enjoyment when choosing and serving your wines.

When selecting wines, keep an open mind and do not be afraid to be adventurous. Do not view the subject of wine so seriously it discourages you from learning and discovering for fear of embarrassment if something is incorrect. Wine is best viewed as a hobby and enjoyed.

When assembling your collection, try not to become obsessed with “Vintages.” Although a chart can be a useful tool, generalizations about a specific year have led more than one collector to disappointment. Often an “Off Year” will provide a better value and more drinking enjoyment.

The primary guideline to the subject of wine is your own palate.

Do not be afraid to make mistakes. Experiment, discover, but most of all, enjoy yourself and your new U-Line product.

Matching Food and Wine

Although there are no hard fast rules for matching wine to food, observe some guidelines. Delicate dishes should be accompanied by lighter more delicate wines. Full-flavored foods should be matched with fuller-bodied wines.

As a general rule, one should aim to ascend in flavor and quality of wines served.

Serve a:

DRY wine

WHITE wine

YOUNG wine

LIGHT-BODIED wine

Before a:

SWEET wine

RED wine

OLD wine

FULL-BODIED wine

Any step back in quality will be noticed. If a fine wine is tasted prior to a lesser wine, many of the fine wine’s subtle qualities may be missed.

A Toast to Wine Truths

Like the grapes themselves, many wine myths have been cultivated over the centuries.

Myth 1: Most wines taste better when aged.

Truth: In fact, less than 5% of wines produced today are meant to be aged. Most wines are crafted to be consumed within the first one to two years.

Myth 2: Wines should be uncorked and decanted allowing them to "breathe."

Truth: To breathe or not breathe? While it is better to allow a young tannic Red to breathe in a glass or decanter to soften the tannins, an old Red reaches a stage in its life where it should be enjoyed soon after opening. Allow an old Red to breathe for a short time to dissipate any off odors. Most white wines can be served, ideally, 10-15 minutes after opening.

Myth 3: When age worthy wines peak, they must be consumed almost immediately.

Truth: Most great wines reach a plateau period rather than a peak.

Great Bordeaux's may have as much as a 10-year plateau before fading.

Myth 4: Wine color does not change with aging.

Truth: As red wines age they get lighter in color while whites get darker.

The Cork: A Mystery on Its Own.

Cork Presentation. The ritual of the presentation of the cork has a rich and fascinating history dating back to the late 1800's. A phylloxera (root louse) devastation to the vineyards severely limited the supply of great wines. Restaurateurs would remove labels on inferior wines and replace them with labels from superior wines. This made it necessary for patrons to protect themselves by checking the branding on the cork to ensure that what they ordered was, in fact, what they were served.

When presented with a cork today, feel it to check for its integrity, read and match the branding on the cork to the bottle and set it aside. There is little to be learned from the cork. The proof is in the wine.

Corked" wines. If you've ever had a wine that smelled or tasted of mold, you've experienced a wine that may have been "corked."

Today, between five and eight percent of wines are tainted with

Trichloroanisole (TCA). This substance, found naturally in plants and trees, is imparted to the wine through the cork. Corked wines are a major concern for winemakers as it destroys millions of cases per year and puts reputations at stake. Amazing as it may seem twist-off caps may offer a better alternative and many great wineries in California, Australia and New Zealand are pioneering the trend.

Common Tasting Terms

Acidity

Balance

Body

Bouquet

Complex

Flabby

Full-Bodied

Lean

Oaky

Tannin

Description

A critical element of wine that is responsible for preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity results in an overly tart and sour wine.

A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend to age gracefully.

The weight and presence of wine in the mouth provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Fullbodied wines tend to have this strong concentration.

The blending of a wine's aroma within the bottle over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.

A subjective term often used in tasting. A wine is said to be complex if it offers a variety of flavors and scents that continue to evolve as it develops.

A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the taste, lacks acidity.

Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.

Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of generosity or thin.

A desirable flavor imparted to wine if done in moderation. Most wines are aged in oak barrels one to three years, thereby receiving this toasty oak characteristic. However, if a weak wine is left in contact too long with an oak barrel it will tend to be overpowered with an oaky taste.

Tannins are extracted from the grape skins and stems and are necessary for a well-balanced red wine. Tannins are easily identified in wine tasting as the drying sensation over the gums. Tannins generally fade as a wine ages.

Ideal Wine Storage Considerations

Temperature: The most important element about storage temperature is stability. If wine is kept in a stable environment between 40°F and 65°F, it will remain sound. A small 1-2 degree temperature fluctuation within a stable environment is acceptable.

Larger temperature fluctuations can affect the corks ability to seal, allowing the wine to "leak" from the bottle.

Humidity: The traditional view on humidity maintains that wines should be stored on their sides in 50% - 80% relative humidity to ensure cork moisture and proper fit in the bottle. Contemporary wisdom suggests that the cork surface is too small to be impacted by humidity. Further the cork is sealed with a metal or wax capsule making humidity penetration impossible. The concept of a humid storage environment was derived from the necessity of wineries to maintain moisture in their cellars to keep wooden barrel staves swollen, preventing wine evaporation and product loss. In fact, vineyards estimate as much as a 10% product loss per year due to evaporation while wine is aging in the wooden barrels.

Humidity, however, was not intended for the modern home cellar where wine is stored in glass bottles with sealed corks.

Light: UV rays are not only harmful to people, they are damaging to wines - especially those in clear bottles. Since oxygen molecules in wine absorb UV rays, wine should never be stored in direct light for long periods of time.

Vibration: Provided that sediment is left undistributed and particles are not suspended, vibration in a storage environment is not an issue. Wines can become flat or tired when voids and vacuums are created inside the wine bottle. In order to create voids and vacuums within a liquid, aggressive motion or shaking of the wine bottle would have to occur.

Wine Stocking Recommendation

Specially designed horizontal wine racks properly positioned the bottles so the wine remains in contact with the cork and assure the cork does not become dry.

Wine Rack Removal and Installation

To remove a rack from the cabinet:

1. Remove any bottles stored on the rack.

2. Grasp the end of the rack, and gently slide it out until it stops.

Stock the unit as follows:

1. Stock the wine racks beginning with the lowest rack, at the back, and working forward. Stagger the bottles as shown.

2. Repeat Step 1 to stock the next higher rack, and continue until all racks are filled.

NOTE: After stocking, allow unit to run 24 hours to

stabilize product temperatures.

3. Press the left rack release lever down. At the same time, lift the matching right rack release lever up. Pull the rack out until it is free of the tracks and the cabinet.

Do not remove the track rails from the cabinet.

To insert a rack in the cabinet:

Align the left and right rack channels with the tracks in the cabinet.

WARNING

You MUST remove the wood trim from the unit for staining or finishing to prevent permanent damage to the inner liner of the unit. Allow stain or finish to dry thoroughly (at least 24 hours for each coat) following the product manufacturer’s instructions before reinstallation. Not following this warning may cause the inner liner of the unit to have a permanent odor, which the warranty will not cover.

U-Line products featuring wine storage include wood-trimmed wine racks.

Models with wood colored wood trim come factory coated with a clear vinyl sealer without a finish coat applied, which will sufficiently protect the wood in normal use. You may coat the trim on the racks with stain or a final finish following these guidelines. If using custom wood trim also follow these guidelines.

If staining the trim, stain before applying any final finish. Review the following staining and final finish application and final finish-only application guidelines when staining or sealing the wood to ensure proper adhesion and durability of the finish.

NOTE: On glass door models the stain may look darker with the door closed looking through the glass.

Staining and final finish application:

DO NOT use oil-based stains on wood trim. Vapors from oil-based stains will permanently penetrate the liner and will not dissipate over time.

1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and remove the trim from the cabinet interior.

2. Lightly sand and clean wood.

3. Apply Minwax ® Water-Based Wood Stain to wood with a synthetic bristle brush or a foam applicator. Allow stain to penetrate about three minutes. Before the stain is dry, take a stain dampened rag and remove any excess stain remaining.

Wipe towards the grain with medium pressure to achieve the desired stain color.

4. After two hours, repeat step 2. This will even out the color of the wood.

5. Allow stain to dry for a minimum of three hours before applying the final finish.

6. If desired, sand the wood with very fine sandpaper to smooth the surface after staining.

7. Remove all dust from the wood, and apply one coat of Minwax ®

Polycrylic ® Protective Finish using a synthetic bristle brush to the wood. Apply this finish in a thin coat following towards the grain. Apply the finish to the back and sides of the wood first, and allow it to dry for two hours. Apply the finish to the front side of the wood next, and allow it to dry for two hours. Sand with very fine 220 grit sandpaper. Apply two morel coats of finish in the same manner, but do not sand the trim after applying the final third coat.

8. Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the trim to the cabinet interior parts.

Final finish-only application:

1. Remove all screws securing wood trim to interior parts, and remove the trim.

2. Lightly scuff sand the wood trim with 280 or finer grit sandpaper.

3. Remove sanding dust with a clean, dry cloth.

4. The factory-applied seal is compatible with almost all finishes. A low odor, water clean up, quick-drying finish such as Minwax ®

Polycrylic ® Protective Finish is recommended (Minwax ®

Polycrylic ® is an ultra fast-drying water-based finish). Apply a thin coat of a clear, protective finish, following the container label directions.

5. Lightly sand and reapply if desired.

Allow the final coat to dry for 24 hours before reinstalling the trim to the cabinet interior parts.
