Too much humidity - wrinkled lables
My first post. I have about 40 bottles of all cabs. I gotta bunch of caymus, cakebreads, pine ridges, silveroaks etc etc..... Well I got this really nice wine fridge, a marvel. I know the temperature changes by 4-7 degrees from the bottom to the top. However, when i get it to where it's 53 on the bottom and 58-60 on the top the bottom two and now three shelves wine bottles have wrinkled lables. It seems the humidity is WAY TOO HIGH! I mean I guess what matters is what's in the bottle but it would be nice to break out a nice bottle with a nice lable. Any ideas? I have since raised the temp to about 60-62 - this has helped. But I'd prefer to put the temp back where it will develop better.
Thanks in advance!
IMO you're over-thinking this...
In gneral the vibe i'm getting is that you jsut have too much humidity, in general... turn the humity down on your entire storage cabinet, IMO.....
But dont' sweat it too much.;. you're talking very high-structured, durable cabernets that can well withstand some less than perfect storage to this tpoint.
Just do those bottles right going forward and, IMO, you';l be fine
I bought it used. For dirt cheap. This guys just wanted to get rid of it. It was sitting in his garage and it's in brand new condition. It's REALLY sensitive to adjust the temp to be either ON or OFF. I got it the best I can now, since it's not digital. I am not sure how old but anyone looking at it would think it's brand new. Well, I did! lol
I don't have any Bordeauxs yet, but I have a few North West of Boardeaux, Pauillacs. Mmmmm, but I can't wait 20 year to drink it like they say to!
Thanks in advance for any help. Is there anything that you can put into a fridge to lower the humidity??
Enjoy your wine!
