Dessert wines like Sauternes or beerenauslese should be served at 40˚F, says Dexheimer. “You want them cold because they have acidity, and you want the acidity to shine through the sugar.” Serving fortified bottles like Port too warm will make the wine taste raisiny and high in alcohol, he says. “In a perfect world, I serve my Ports at 62 or 63 degrees, a few degrees above cellar temperature and 10 degrees below room temperature.”

Time In Fridge:
2.75 hours (dessert), 45 minutes (fortified)

Time In Freezer:
30 minutes, 7 minutes

Time In Ice Bucket With Water:
11 minutes, 4 minutes
