Should white zinfandel be chilled or not?

I am having guests over and this is what I'm serving.


Answer by  Zaka (2315)

Absolutely. Without chilling it would simply taste like stale cola soda. Chill in the fridge for at least two hours beforte serving.

Some people like white zinfandel chilled while others do not. Personally, I think it tastes better chilled but others like it better at room temperature. As long as you don't chill it and then let it get warm, it will taste good either way. If you're not sure, then keep it warm with a bucket of ice nearby.


Answer by  Zaka (2315)

Yes, you should. White Zinfandel is too syrupy and soda like and benefits from chilling mush like soda benefits from chilling. Another reason is that it makes the otherwise uninteresting quaffing wine more agreeable by adding the element of refreshment. Without the refreshment quality it is absolutely pointless to drink white zinfandel.

White zinfandel is usually served chilled, yes. You'll want to serve it at a temperature somewhere between 40 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit. But with wine, as with all things, if you or your guests actually like it better at room temperature, then by all means, serve it at room temperature. Wine is for enjoying.

White zinfandel should be served chilled. The ideal temperature for serving white wines is actually around 50 degrees, which is warmer than the average refrigerator temperature. Chill it for several hours then take it out about half an hour before serving it.

Yes, white zinfandel should be served chilled. This is a blush wine. In general, white wine should be served chilled, and red wine room temperature.


Answer by  winegirl (4)

I usually chill white zinfandel. I think it tastes better if it is slightly chilled. Generally white wine is chilled while red wine is not chilled because it tastes better at room temperature. Although I choose to chill white zinfandel, you should do whatever you think will make the wine taste better
