Adding to its existing portfolio of wine fridges, German refrigeration specialist Liebherr has introduced its next generation of GranduCru models. Liebherr’s wine fridges have been designed to offer optimal long-term protective storage conditions, preserving the essence of every bottle and allowing consumers to enjoy wine the way the winemaker intended.
The wine fridges create a constant temperature in order to protect the wine’s characte. The new models provide double temperature protection thanks to TempProtect Plus, monitoring via two sensors, giving double assurance wine is protected from temperature fluctuations. The HumidityControl feature also provides the correct humidity, which in turn ensures 'supple corks'. HumidityControl can be used to adjust the humidity individually per section – this ranges from 50% to 80% RH and constantly displays the actual value. If the value falls below 50% RH, the appliance indicates this.
Additionally, preventing unfavourable ageing processes from taking place, Liebherr’s glass door models have triple-layered tinted UV-protective glass and a double layer of vacuum-deposited metal. Charcoal filters ensure a constant supply of fresh air helping neutralise foreign odours, preventing any change in taste. The appliance gives a reminder to change the filter every six months, and thanks to a holistic vibration-insulated cooling system, wine is allowed to mature undisturbed.
Tim Hutchinson, divisional manager at Liebherr, said: “At Liebherr, we have dedicated huge resources into better understanding how to store wine to best preserve and enhance its taste, whilst providing unparalleled functionality for professionals and consumers. That is why we’re extremely proud to be launching the new ranges of wine fridges that not only meet, but surpass these demands.”
