Chilled reds: that is a thing!

Chillable reds have been such a hit in recent years. What makes them popular is how they have the same or sometimes a better thirst quenching quality than most whites and roses. Also known as glou-glou wines, a French term, to refer to wines that are super easy to drink and quaffable.

This style of wine is super delicious, easy drinking, and can be great for warmer days. Some of our chillable reds perfectly suited to this category are as follows:

Richard Stavek, Czech Republic, Divy Rysak 2017

Jaroslav Osicka, Modry Portugal, Czech Republic, 2016

Jaroslav Osicka, P.A.N, Czech Republic, 2018

Vinarstvi Cacik, Frankovka, Czech Republic, 2017

Reka-Koncz, Kekfrankos, Hungary, 2018

Dva Duby, Impera, Czech Republic, 2018

Magula, Carboniq, Slovakia, 2018

Krasna Hora, Ruby, Czech Republic, 2019

In fact, most reds, at times, are served too warm. When winemakers suggest drinking a red at room temperature, it is usually to be served at cellar temperatures, which is around the 12 degree mark. Reds wines, when served slightly cooler helps taming them, and as the temperature slowly rises, while in the glass, the wine evolves and shows off its layers gradually. Much more softer and pleasurable to drink.
