Sun damage generally manifests

Once your cellar begins to grow, you’ll need to figure out how you want to store wine. Of course, ideally you would have a custom cellar built, underneath your house, with temperature and humidity controls installed by professionals. But for most people, this simply isn’t viable – either because of space, cost, or practical concerns .

The next best option is to purchase a large free-standing wine cooler, which will allow you to store wine in different temperature-controlled regions. These refrigerators range from small, table-top units that hold up to 18 bottles, to larger, wall-sized units that hold up to 144 bottles. If you have an extensive collection, however, these may not be viable master of fine art hong kong.

In that case, it’s good to understand what exactly you want to do – and what you want to avoid – when storing your wine. Even a closet can act as a serviceable wine cellar, so long as you’re mindful of a few basic rules.

The most important aspect to storing wine is keeping the temperature constant. Ideally, you’d keep it at around 54°F (12.2°C), but anything less than 75°F (24°C) will do. Constancy is the most important part, though. Even if you’re within that range master of fine art hong kong, if your temperature is fluctuating by ten degrees a day (or even seasonally), your wine will suffer. Changing temperatures will force air through the cork, and the wines will breathe in too much oxygen, aging them prematurely, and ultimately degrading the wine. A warmer, but stable, cellar is far preferable to a cooler, wildly fluctuating, cellar.

Bottles should always be stored on their sides (or, if for some reason that’s not possible, upside down). Storing a wine upright keeps the wine away from the cork, and over time it may dry out and crack. This will allow oxygen in to the wine, again degrading it and making it age prematurely . If you’re laying wines on their side for extended periods of time hong kong wine academy, you may want to store them with the label facing up, so that when you pull out the wine you can assess any sediment that has built up over time and decide whether you need to decant the wine.

Wine should always be stored in the dark, and never in direct sunlight. Most wines are bottled in dark glass to help minimize the impact of light, but over time even small amounts of UV radiation can damage the wine. Sun damage generally manifests as an unpleasant smell in the wine.

Humidity is also something to watch out for. Too little humidity and you increase the chances of the cork drying out, and also speed up evaporation of your wine (which over decades can lead to a noticeable loss of wine in the bottle). Too much humidity (over 70%) and you will start to see the growth of molds that can damage your wine.

Finally, try to avoid moving your wines more than you need to. Shaking a wine will stir up sediments that may have settled out as part of the aging process. Obviously transporting your wines is to be expected, but try to make sure you don’t put your cellar near large vibrating appliances like washing machines or refrigerators.

Low alcohol wines

Alcohol levels in wine are one of the great areas of debate in the contemporary wine world. To understand why, it’s important to understand what causes alcohol in a wine, and what effect on the final product those levels have.

Alcohol is a direct result of the fermentation process. Sugars in the grape juice are converted into alcohol during fermentation. If grapes have higher levels of sugar, and they end up with no sugar remaining, the final wine will have higher levels of alcohol than wines made from lower-sugar juice. Sugar content develops over the course of grape ripening – the longer grapes are allowed to ripen, the higher the sugar levels (measured in brix) found in the juice.

In France, Germany, and Austria – as well as some other regions – overall cooler temperatures and a relatively early harvest result in lower sugar levels, and therefore lower alcohol levels. Old World winemakers (and Old World consumers) tend to prefer low alcohol wines for other reasons – mainly that they believe it allows the elements of terroir to shine through, and allows consumers to enjoy the wine longer without experiencing palate fatigue. Some regions of the Old World – Italy, Spain, and the Rhône, for example – tend towards higher temperatures, and therefore higher alcohol wines. Even there, however, the style has traditionally been one of more restrained, low alcohol wines.

The main flashpoint for the discussion of high alcohol wines has been California. In the past thirty years wines in California have become consistently more alcoholic – to the point where it has become rare to find wines of less than 14% alcohol, and wines in the mid- to high-15% range are commonplace. There are a number of reasons for this: alcohol increases the body of a wine, and can help wines seem sweeter, as well as more textured. Some critics (most notably Robert Parker) have also promoted higher-alcohol wines (especially in California), and winemakers seeking out higher scores have ratcheted their alcohol levels higher and higher.

Climate change may also be playing a role – especially in Old World regions like Bordeaux. As temperatures rise globally, wines naturally ripen more quickly on the vine, making it easier to end up with higher-sugar grapes.

You’re likely to hear strong words on both side of the debate. An increasingly vocal movement is adamantly opposed to the trend towards higher alcohol wines, calling these wines ‘cheap’ and ‘heavy-handed’. Alcohol is a tricky creature, and is really something that should be left up to each individual’s tastes and to each individual wine. There are 13% wines which are unbalanced and taste ‘hot’, and there are 15.5% wines that are perfectly balanced and don’t betray a taste of strong alcohol. As a rule of thumb, avoid judging a wine based on the number on the bottle, and listen instead to your tastebuds when deciding whether the wine is too alcoholic or not.

Tonight, wait for you, love the time.

Dear, that of under the umbrella of the lane in the rain, a plume of waves flowing in the rain eaves read, when the wind blows, Acacia will fall into the endless lingering, with a mind to render such as blue. If the time, such as leaf Qingping, then give love to a calm, a calm feeling; dear, I would like this, a warm heart of love, stretch slowly in time; a drop into the heart of the Zen concept, in the wind and swirling will tender; at the time, the spread of fiber soft fingers. If there were stars shining on the horizon, it would be my deepest yearning for you.
Tonight, I'm drunk, I put the soft night sky, burning into a love of desire, that flashing thoughts, whether in your dream waves? The scent of the wind, accompanied by a rose, will certainly bring you news. Dear, I miss you, but dare not to think of you, I am afraid when I think of you will cry; tonight, I am drunk, every flower, into your appearance, when the petal is gone with the wind, precipitation will be in your memory? Dear, that is not your cry, that is the yearning tenderness into the love of breathing.
Tonight, with a gentle waiting for you, splash ink, painting overnight; tonight, with a smile waiting for you, cut word for poetry, has written the rain. Tonight, wait for you, love the time.
