Where to eat in Malaga, Spain | The Málaga Food Guide – Food & Drink News ~ Chilling Reds this Summer

"...enjoy a cool glass of red during the hot summer months"

Most red wines don’t match the lighter food of summer, but Terry Kirby writing on the Indy/Life page, says chilling reds in warm weather helps to sharpen flavours and preserve structure of the wine. However, warm red´s can mute the flavours and bizarely seem to be more alcoholic.

Although generally it’s not recommended to chill grapes or wines at the heavier end of the spectrum, such as syrah, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, or oaky, aged Riojas, even half an hour in the fridge door can liven some wines up.
