How do you cellar your wine?
I have 2 Vintec fridges which are set at cellaring temp (12 degrees) and I also have an under the stairs stash (as they don’t all fit in my fridges).
I use the Oeno by Vintec wine cellar app to keep a track of what’s in the fridges as well as under the stairs (you can use the app for any type of cellar, it doesn’t have to be a Vintec product).
I recently reorganised and updated my app so I know exactly what’s in there and what I may need to drink in 2021.
While doing this, I got enticed to crack open a bottle of Evans & Tate 2011 Redbrook Shiraz from WA’s Margaret River. I have a few bottles so I figured if I crack one now and see how it is, I can then decide whether to open the rest this year or keep it longer.
And what am I going to do?
It’s tasting beautifully however it will go longer for sure. From it’s bricky red yet vibrant colour in the glass to all the yummy aromas of things like blackcurrants, violets, plums and spice. It’s silky and voluptuous in the mouth yet elegant and refined. A truly beautiful wine.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
