I also think that fluctuation in temperature may be a bigger cause of oxidation than just one constant high temp. My theory; when it is hot the CO2 pressure builds up (expansion caused by heat) and the CO2 escapes from the bottle. When the bottle cools again, the Co2 contracts and the "vacuum" that forms is filled with air from the outside. Try to store ...


It has been said that for every 10C of temperature increase the oxidation rate roughly doubles. So yes temperature does increase oxidation rate. In general increases in heat increase all chemical reactions.
