Storing Wine Correctly
作者:    发布于:2015-10-22 17:17:53    文字:【】【】【

In the summer of 2007, I spent a month driving around southern France along with 5 friends. We slept in our cars and lived on the road. A real vagabond’s vacation.
2007年的夏天,我和5个伙伴在法国南部自驾游了一个月。一路上风餐露宿,晚上就睡在车里,一群汉子彻底体验了男人流浪的浪漫情怀,浪子了一把。
My buddy, Benny, decided to treat himself to an expensive bottle of regional red wine that would remain sealed until the day of his graduation. Last year (2014) that day had finally arrived.
我的好兄弟,本尼,在当地买血本了一瓶颇为昂贵的红酒,准备珍藏到大学毕业之后喝。去年(2014),这瓶酒终于又重见天日了。

Our mouths were watering in anticipation as we pulled the cork on this exquisite bottle. But, as the cork popped out of the bottleneck an acrid smell entered our noses and I don’t know why (maybe we were still in denial) we poured a glass of this pungent potion just to find ourselves cringing and coughing in disgust. Obviously, he didn’t have the means to store his wine correctly and has subsequently cultivated an expensive bottle of vinegar.

我们流着口水满怀期待的打开了封口的软木塞。但是,瓶塞离开瓶口后,并没有出现我们想象中的美妙气味,而是冲出一股刺鼻的味道。但我们不信邪,还是将这瓶女巫魔药似的酒灌入喉咙,然后就是止不住的恶心和咳嗽。很明显,本尼没有好好地储存这瓶葡萄酒,生生的将一瓶昂贵的艺术品红酒“升级”成了难以入口的果醋。
When it comes to storing wine, several factors play a role. Is it red wine, white wine or rosé? How was the bottle sealed? Cork, plastic or screw cap? Don’t underestimate the impact the sun has the quality of the wine. Ideally, you have a cool, dark room like a basement, with a controlled temperature around 13 °C to 14 °C.
葡萄酒的储存有很多讲究。首先要看是什么酒,红葡萄酒,白葡萄酒还是桃红葡萄酒?葡萄酒用什么瓶塞,软木塞,塑料塞,还是螺旋盖?也千万不能忽视阳光温度对葡萄酒的影响,最理想的储存条件就是13 °C to-14 °C,阴凉避光的地窖。

Bottles with screw caps or synthetic corks can be stored laying down or standing up but be aware of agglomerated and technical corks as they are merely cork dust that has been glued together. I recommend you store these bottles standing up so the moisture does not wear on the cork glue compound, which would leave you with a corked wine. Bottles sealed with real corks should be stored, ideally, in a room with 60% humidity, lying down to prevent the cork from drying out and thereby allowing oxygen to enter the bottle, spoiling the wine.
螺旋盖和塑料塞的酒可以平躺储存或直立摆放。但是那些合成软木塞就要注意,一定要直立着放了,因为横放的话,酒很容易透过那些小颗粒的碎木屑团渗漏出来,留下一个空瓶给你。
葡萄酒最完美的储存方式就是:在湿度为60%的避光空间里,将用正真软木塞密封的酒品斜躺着,让酒体能湿润瓶塞,防止软木塞干燥,以避免空气进入瓶中破坏葡萄酒的品质。
I for one have learned this lesson the hard way.
吃一堑长一智,我深刻记住了这一课。
