How do you chill a wine as quickly as possible? If you put ice cubes in the wine, a sommelier dies somewhere in the world. So they say. Of course, we don't want that to happen. That's why we're telling you our best methods for chilling white, rosé and sparkling wine quickly and without compromise.
Keep a few frozen grapes in the freezer to chill wine with when needed. Put 1-2 grapes in the glass or 6-8 in a decanter. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but very quick and especially recommended for a spontaneous aperitif.
Put ice cubes in a bucket or sink, sprinkle generously with salt, and add ice-cold water. Professionals call this method «frapping.» It is important to rotate the bottle every few minutes so that the wine cools evenly.
Wrap the bottle in a damp paper or cloth kitchen towel and place it in the freezer. It's best to set a timer so you don't accidentally freeze the bottle. It is recommended to gently swirl the bottle every 5 minutes.
There are cooling sleeves in all shapes and colors for sale, as well as special aerators with cooling rods. They don't cost much and are certainly a worthwhile purchase for wine fans. Both must be placed in the freezer early - preferably permanently.
On the bottle it says «For heartfelt moments». We absolutely agree with that! The Chardonnay from our favorite winemaker combines Austrian down-to-earthness with tropical fruit. Simply irresistible!
Anything but just «black and white», because here is real white wine power in it. If you like it fresh and yet powerful, this Austrian cuvée of Chardonnay and Grüner Veltliner is just right.
This is what summer tastes like when you put it in a bottle! Fresh citrus, peach, floral fragrance and a pinch of salt... Wölffer Estates is one of the leading producers of rosé wine. A feast for the palate and the eyes!
The Luã is a paean to the relaxed life. Its fruity and floral notes combined with the freshness of a sea breeze take us away from everyday life.
Viva! When it gets too hot down in the city, we enjoy the freshness of our beautiful Swiss mountains. And as the perfect summit wine, we pack this Bünder sparkling wine in our backpacks.
This is how to cool down in style: the champagne from the renowned house of Jacquart gives freshness, seduces with a fruity-light taste and a pleasantly strong perlage. Santé!
