Temperature fluctuations in transit found to have major implications for wine quality

A recent study by Sensitech (10/09/06) indicates that temperature plays a vital role in the winemaking process, maturation and, very importantly, storage.

The negative effects of temperature fluctuations on wine quality were confirmed in the study, aimed at finding a correlation between high temperature, temperature fluctucations and shelf life as well as a reduced organoleptic profile of the wine.

The study found that wines that were exposed to larger and higher temperature fluctuations were negatively affected on a sensory and chemical level.

What this all means is that wines from other regions of the world may have problems that are not associated with their wine quality, just the shipping so --- Store your wine in a quiet and temperature steady place and enjoy your wine!

I have been interested in this theme for a long time and it was insulting for me that during development of technologies, I still search for the information offline. With the advent of your site I have plunged with all my soul into Internet.
