There is no better exemplar of the way perfect storage conditions bring out the finer characteristics of a product than with wine.
Wine inherently does not want to survive. From the moment it is filled in the bottle, wine is in a permanent state of degradation, and how that wine degrades – or ages – is what makes an incredible and historical experience.
Wine is challenged by light, temperature, humidity, and agitation. It is the combination of these factors that creates characteristics in wine that either promote or detract from the true representation of the estate.
Every wine has its ideal serving temperature to bring out the full spectrum of flavours and aromas the winemaker has worked hard to imbue in every bottle.
Serving wine too cold accentuates tannins and acidity, giving an astringent taste and masking subtle floral and fruity notes. Too warm, and alcohols become pronounced, overriding many of the flavours that make a fine wine so special.
Knowing the right serving temperature for the specific wine varietal is the key to bringing out every subtle note the winemaker intended.
With flavours of apple, tropical fruits, lime and peach, dry white wines like unoaked Sauvignon Blanc are ideally served at around 7°C to promote these fruity flavours.
Dark and complex, a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon may open with notes of plum, dark berries, vanilla and black pepper. Serving warmer at 15°C will present the fullness of the wine, improving mouthfeel and promoting deeper flavours.
Between 6°C and 8°C, champagne is at its peak. The cooler temperature makes for finer bubbles that do not turn to foam, while sitting in the perfect range to accentuate more subtle fruity flavours.
Invest In Your Collection
Wine is an investment – in time, in knowledge, and in a collection that will continue to develop and improve with the years.
We have partnered with master sommeliers and winemakers to gain a deep understanding of the perfect conditions for aging wines of every vintage and varietal, applying decades of expertise in refrigeration to create our luxury wine cabinets.
Combined with Column refrigerators and freezers, this is the ultimate kitchen solution to showcase your finest bottles.
UV light-blocking glass protects wine from excessive light, slowing chemical reactions that will destroy the delicate bouquet of wine and lead to off flavours. LED display lighting illuminates the cabinet to showcase your collection.
Dual independent zones and flexible temperature settings allow you to serve your white and red wine at the perfect temperature, while cellaring your most treasured bottles to continue developing.
Energy created by vibrations can destroy the esters that give wine its deep aroma and flavour. Protect your collection with anti-vibration full extension oak shelves and low-vibration compressor technology.
For centuries, winemakers have stored wine in cellars underground. Not only does this keep bottles cool, but also away from the particularly detrimental effects of light.
UV light causes chemical reactions that degrade the delicate bouquet of wine and cause off flavours in the wine.
Fisher & Paykel wine cabinets feature multi-layer UV protection to keep your bottles in peak condition for aging.

The wine cellar has long been a point of conversation for discerning collectors – a showpiece of the home to be shared with friends and other connoisseurs alike.
