The advantages of the Pure range:
The evocative and symbolic name given to all of the cabinets in this range. Cabinets devised and designed, down to the last detail, to store your bottles in the best possible conditions, reduce energy consumption and contribute to caring for the environment. The Pure range is based on the desire to create a new generation of cabinets which represent a return to our roots, a clever combination of advanced technology and environmentally-friendly features.
Within the elegant, clean lines of the cabinets, your wines are stored in conditions in which they can reach their full potential, protected from variations in temperature and humidity, U.V. light and vibration...
Storage and preservation advice...
Did you know? All wines mature at the same temperature, whether underground or in an electric wine cabinet.
Maturing cabinets EuroCave reproduces all of the criteria required for effectively maturing wines, in this way recreating, on a smaller scale, the ideal storage conditions found in a natural cellar. 5 criteria are essential for a wine to reach its full potential:
A constant temperature - For optimal wine maturing, it is necessary to have a stable temperature of 10°C - 14°C, whatever the external temperature is.
Suitable humidity levels - It is essential to maintain suitable humidity levels, between 50 and 80%. The ideal humidity level is 50 - 80%. Below 50%, the cork could dry out causing the wine to leech out. Above 80%, condensation could appear on the bottles and the labels could peel off. Mould may even develop if there is insufficient air circulation.
Ideal ventilation - it is essential to ensure there is sufficient air circulation or mould and bacteria could develop.
Maximum protection from light - For optimal maturation, wine must be protected from all sources of light: only darkness prevents the deterioration of tannins by oxidation. Direct sunlight containing UV rays causes irreparable damage to wine. Indirect light is also harmful. In the long term, it can break down the structure of the wine and dilute it.
Absence of vibrations - In order to mature in optimal conditions, wine must be protected from vibrations, which break down the molecules of some of wine's chemical compounds.
Flush-fitting conditions for this cabinet
This cabinet is not specifically designed to be flush-fitted, it does not correspond to the standard dimensions of flush-fitting furniture and it is not ventilated at the front. It is therefore necessary to follow these precise installation criteria to make flush-fitting possible and guarantee the durability of the cabinet. (Ask your EuroCave advisor for flush-fitting instructions if necessary)
The chosen location of your cabinet must be open to the outside in order to ensure sufficient air circulation (not in an enclosed cupboard...), not too damp (linen room, laundry room, bathroom...), have a flat stable floor and it must have an electricity supply (standard socket, 16 A, earthed with circuit breaker, 30 mA*).
Take the power lead (located in the "accessories" packet of your cabinet) and plug it into the connector, located at the bottom left-hand side of the back of the cabinet. Wait 48hrs before plugging in the cabinet after transportation.
Fit the stopper (located in the accessories packet) at the back of the cabinet. This allows you to maintain a space of 7 cm between the wall and the back of the cabinet. This space optimises your cabinet's power consumption. Place the 2 caps in the 2 holes of the top of the cabinet. Do not push the caps all the way in, in order to allow installation of the back stopper. Slide the back stopper between the caps and the wall of the cabinet, then push the 2 caps all the way in.
