The optimum temperature and air quality. Miele KWT 6112 iG ed-cs | Manualzz

The optimum temperature and air quality

Wine keeps on maturing depending on the surrounding conditions. The length of time for which wine can be kept in good condition will therefore depend not only on the temperature but also on the air quality.

The wine conditioning unit with its constant ideal temperature, increased air humidity and odour free atmosphere offers the perfect conditions for storing your wine.

It also guarantees a vibration-free environment (in contrast to a refrigerator) so that the maturing process is not disturbed.

The optimum temperature

Wine can be stored at a temperature between 6 und 18 °C. If you are storing white and red wines together, select a temperature between 12 und 14 °C.

This is suitable for both white and red wines. Red wine should be taken out of the wine conditioning unit and opened at least two hours before drinking to allow it to breathe and develop its aroma.

At too high a temperature (over 22 °C) wine matures too quickly, which prevents the aromas from developing further. Wine cannot mature fully at too low a temperature (below 5 °C).

Fluctuations in temperature put wine under stress and interrupt the maturing process. It is therefore very important to maintain a constant temperature.

Type of wine Recommended drinking temperature

Light, fruity reds: +14 °C to +16 °C

Full-bodied reds: +18 °C

+8 °C to +10 °C

+8 °C to +12 °C

Rosé wines:

Delicate, aromatic whites:

Full-bodied or sweet whites:

Champagne, sparkling white wines:

+12 °C to +14 °C

+6 °C to +10 °C

Tip: Store the wine 1 or 2°C cooler than the recommended drinking temperature as it warms up a little when poured into the glass.

Tip: Full-bodied reds should be opened for 2-3 hours before drinking to allow the wine to breathe and develop its aroma.
