For many years, we’ve been keeping your loved ones comfortable at home with our Dimplex heaters and air conditioners. Now we’re taking our expertise, and putting it to use keeping another love comfortable in your home – wine.
Aging wine is an art form that wine lovers and connoisseurs have enjoyed for centuries. Over time, flavours, aromas, and even colours change. In the words of Ernest Hemingway, “Wine is the most civilised thing in the world,” so correct storage is a must for turning a young vibrant wine into a mature civilised classic. Heat is enemy number one for wine, since it will make it age quicker than usually desirable; and the household fridge is fine for up to a couple of months, before drying out the corks due to the lack of moisture. So what to do with the wine you bought that you're not planning on drinking right away?
True wine connoisseurs understand the importance of avoiding rapid, extreme or frequent temperature swings for effective long term wine storage, and that different types of wine require different storage temperatures and conditions. The Dimplex dual zone technology allows you to store red, white, rosé, and sparkling wine at their optimum temperatures. Independently controlled temperature zones are a must!
The ideal temperature to store those precious bottles of wine ranges between 7°C and 18°C depending on the grape varietal.
Red wines like Shiraz, Merlot or Pinot Noir are best stored at 18°C. White and rosé wines such as Chardonnay, Riesling or Semillon varietals store better at 13°C. And don't forget the sparkling and the champagne! They should be stored at 7°C, a cooler and ready-to-drink temperature.
The upper compartment from the DWF45DZ Dual-zone Wine Fridge / Cooler can hold a temperature between 5 to 14°C (perfect for whites, roses or sparklings). The lower compartment can range from 10 to 18°C (ideal for reds, or more white!). Plus, our Dimplex Wine Chiller boasts a 126-litre capacity - enough room to store in total 45 standard bottles of liquid love (750ml each). That's 24 red and 21 white, or 45 all white / sparkling.
Wooden shelves and a stainless/glass door (that can open left or right), give the Dimplex Wine Fridge a real premium feel along with LED controls and internal light. Complete with clever anti-UV glass to protect the wine, and it won’t be long before it’s your new best friend.
