Like a prized rose, a fine wine sometimes needs a little finesse to blossom. A young red may resemble a tight bud, its full flavor and aroma waiting to be released. An older vintage may have bloomed to its fullest splendor but carry with it unwanted sediment. The ritual of decanting can address these problems.
What is decanting? It is the process by which a liquid layer is separated from sediment. This allows oxygen to circulate, which can massage the wine to soften bitter tannins and quickly draw out more intense aromas and flavors.
If you’re looking for the super model of decanters, this tall and slim hunk of gorgeous glass is just what you’re looking for. Unique crackled glass gives it the look of modern art. Holds 25.4 oz (750ml) and measures 13¾" high and 3¼" in diameter.
Decanters not only add air your wine, but also add to the presentation!
