We continue with the special on red wines talking about the serving temperature of the reds. In many cases we have heard that red wines can be taken at room temperature, which is a totally false statement and leads to the mistake of thinking that red wine should not be refrigerated. Red wines need to have the right temperature to balance alcohol, acidity and astringency, as well as to be able to obtain the aromas and nuances in the mouth that red wine offers us.
Clos Pons winery has vineyards spread between L’Albagès and La Pobla de Cérvoles, between about 500 and 700 meters high and next to the Serra de la Llena, which separates the coastal land with the interior. This separation makes the climate extreme, with a very high temperature in summer but with cold nights and a cold and humid winter. In addition, the soil on which the vineyard is located is clay-limestone, poor in organic matter, which gives the wines a remarkable concentration and minerality, balanced with the acidity and woody notes of these wines.
During winter time and with cold weather, we like to prepare dishes with a higher caloric load and in accordance with the temperature, such as stews, meats, soups or creams. This type of cuisine pairs exellently well with red wine, since, in adition, the tannins provided by this type of wine help dissolve the fat in the food throughout the digestive process.
