the ideal temperature to cellar all wines (colour is ignored here) is 12-14 degrees C. If outside these temperatures some things might happen, namely too warm and the wine will age prematurely, too cold and it will go into hibernation and maybe never come out. We keep ours in a cupboard that seems to stay fairly constant and I haven't lost a wine yet. There are a few that are getting to the stage of "better drink it soon or it might be vinegar" so I need to make an effort. Damn shame!

But serving at 2 degrees is RONG!

I do not disagree whatever with anything you said. Maybe our fridges and yours are different temps. Some sort of Down Under v. Right Side Up thing. Wink

Seriously, we do not let it languish there for days or even hours, but do try to bring it down the the temps you note.

Yep. The consensus is no higher than 15C temperature when keeping wine, especially if is gonna sit for months.
Something that you're gonna consume only days after purchase mehhh...just put it in the fridge for 45 minutes before you drink it and you'll get the correct taste.
I'm far from a connoisseur but I noticed that a wine too cold taste funny, kinda like warm beer. Yikes!

Two Hands, Gnarly Dudes is the right one to try from their stable - top drop. But yes mark, you are right - can't go wrong with Maclaren Vale - just ask Mr Gout

Different strokes I guess. I found the Two Hands too sweet and cloying. We had to go through two bottles before I said 'enough of this swill' and they said 'you do better'. So I did.

They figured I was a bit too bogan 'cos I'd drunk two pints of White Rabbit to their half-pint of Stone & Wood.

City folk. Rolling Eyes
