Matching Food and Wine
5 U-Line Wine Guide
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.
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

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.

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.
Red Wines
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.
Full-Bodied Dry
California

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

The Cork: A Mystery on Its Own.
Ideal Wine Storage Considerations
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.
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.
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
Terminology
Description
Acidity
A critical element of wine that is responsible for
preserving the wines freshness. Excess acidity
results in an overly tart and sour wine.
Balance
A desired trait where tannin, fruit and acidity are
in total harmony. Wines with good balance tend
to age gracefully.
Body
The weight and presence of wine in the mouth
provided by the alcohol and tannin level. Fullbodied wines tend to have this strong
concentration.
Bouquet
The blending of a wine’s aroma within the bottle
over a period of time, caused by volatile acidity.
Complex
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.
Flabby
A wine that lacks structure, or is heavy to the
taste, lacks acidity.
Full-Bodied
Wine high in alcohol and extract, generally
speaking, fills the mouth, powerful.
Lean
Generally describes wines that are slim, lacking of
generosity or thin.
Oaky
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.
Tannin
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.
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.
The Right Temperature for Wine

Defrosting
8 Cleaning
Exterior Cleaning
• Stainless door panels, and handles can discolor when exposed
to chlorine gas, pool chemicals, saltwater or cleaners with
bleach.
• Keep your stainless unit looking new by cleaning with a good
quality all-in-one stainless steel cleaner polish monthly. For best
results use Claire® Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner, which can
be purchased from U-Line Corporation (Part Number 173348).
Comparable products are acceptable. Frequent cleaning will
remove surface contamination that could lead to rust. Some
installations may require cleaning weekly.
• Do not clean with steel wool pads.
• Do not use stainless steel cleaners or polishes on any
glass surfaces.
Minor Frost on the rear wall, or visible through the evaporator
plate vents is normal and will melt during each off cycle. If there is
excessive build-up of 1/4" or more, manually defrost the unit.
• Ensure the door is closing and sealing properly.
• High ambient temperature and excessive humidity can also
produce frost.
CAUTION
DO NOT use an ice pick or other sharp instrument to
help speed up defrosting. These instruments can puncture
the inner lining or damage the cooling unit. DO NOT use
any type of heater to defrost. Using a heater to speed up
defrosting can cause personal injury and damage to the
inner lining.
• Clean any glass surfaces with a non-chlorine glass cleaner.
• Do not use cleaners not specifically intended for
stainless steel on stainless surfaces (this includes glass,
tile and counter cleaners).
• If any surface discoloring or rusting appears, clean it quickly
with Bon-Ami® or Barkeepers Friend Cleanser® and a
nonabrasive cloth. Always clean with the grain. Always finish
with Claire Stainless Steel Polish and Cleaner or comparable
product to prevent further problems.
• Using abrasive pads such as Scotchbrite™ will cause
the graining in the stainless to become blurred.
• Rust not cleaned up promptly can penetrate the
surface of the stainless steel and complete removal of
the rust may not be possible.
Interior Cleaning
IMPORTANT
The drain pan was not designed to capture the water
created when manually defrosting. To prevent water from
overflowing the drain pan and possibly damaging water
sensitive flooring the unit must be removed from
cabinetry.
WARNING
Do not attempt to manually defrost your unit without
first contacting customer care. The unit must be
removed from installation to properly defrost.
Attempting to defrost the unit without following
proper procedure may result in substantial water
damage.
• Disconnect power to the unit.
• Clean the interior and all removed components using a mild
nonabrasive detergent and warm water solution applied with a
soft sponge or non-abrasive cloth.
• Rinse the interior using a soft sponge and clean water.
• Do not use any solvent-based or abrasive cleaners. These types
of cleaners may transfer taste to the interior products and
damage or discolor the lining.

BUILDING ON THREE GENERATIONS OF INNOVATION
For nearly five decades and three generations, U-Line continues to be the leader in innovation, quality and value in
the premium built-in undercounter ice making, refrigeration and wine preservation market. U-Line has captivated
those with an appreciation for the finer things with exceptional functionality, style, inspired innovation and attention
to even the smallest details. We are known and respected for our unwavering dedication to product design, quality
and selection.
In 1962, Henry Uihlein founded U-Line Corporation as an outgrowth of Ben-Hur Freezer Company and was the first
to develop and patent an automatic stand-alone undercounter residential ice maker. His foresight and determination
to develop new ideas and to succeed when there were no clear guidelines or solutions are evident today. The newest
Uihlein generation continues to build upon the family’s innovative legacy at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin based business
by providing continuity and vision from which new designs and technology continue to be born.
Today the complete U-Line product collection includes Ice Makers, Wine Captain® Models, Combo® Models,
a Refrigerator / Freezer, Refrigerators, Drawers and Beverage Centers. The U-Line brand offers products in the
1000 Series, 2000 Series and the Modular 3000 Series. The 1000 Series offers a more targeted priced product with
appropriate features, while the 2000 Series offers upscale features, advanced technology and specialized product
families. U-Line’s approach to its breadth of products, multiple price points and features allows a choice and
product that will fit any lifestyle.
