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.
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.
Continuing with the special on white wines, in this chapter we want to tell you about our aged white wines, ideal for cooler summer nights, when the temperature of the day drops and you feel like preparing more elaborate dishes such as fatty fish, stews or white meats.
Summer is time for fresh, lighter and less elaborate dishes, in which white wines are the perfect pairing. Rice, fresh pasta, grilled seasonal vegetables and what else than the wine that we bring you today to pair it.
When the summer arrives, white wines are the most appealed ones to share a good meal with your loved ones. They have nice and fresh aromas and their ideal serving temperature ranges between 8 and 10ºC.
Our red wine, Alges, is the best known wine of the Clos Pons Winery and the one that best defines the character of our winery, marked by an abrupt terrain with an extreme climatology that confers very characteristic identity features. The territory of Les Garrigues and all its essence are represented in this wine.
