Hello everyone,

Sadly during a 5 day holiday my aircon broke down and the temperatures in the wine room reached 90F.

I opened a few bottles and the wine aroma has clearly decreased and after drinking a glass there is an off taste that is left in the mouth.

is there anything I can do to save the wine or is it all a write-off?

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Sorry to hear. That's my nightmare.

I'm completely vulnerable to the climate. I can't control much of any of the variables. I try and keep track of the better stuff for giving away or thank you's. The rest might not blow my hair back, but it is still better then the cheap stuff I would otherwise buy.

Bottom Line: Lower your expectations. :D

For how long did the wine remain in the 90F temperature?
