Wine Decanter $35 (inc GST) + $7.00 P&H
We have enjoyed using this hand held wine decanter for over two years now.When many wines are first opened(whites included), they are described as being “closed”, not so soft....not displaying all of their lovely flavours and nuances...
We say they need to breath and “open up”. This happens with time, or decanting can speed things along. Opening the bottle early just lets the top bit breath, a large carafe lets it all breath, but then all of it needs
to be drunk, and I don’t like cleaning tannin stains out of carafes!
The Magic Decanter allows you to test any bottle you open by first tasting a mouth full of un-decanted wine, then pouring a second taste through the decanter. Your nose and tongue will be the guide, and you can decide which
you prefer. In most cases, if the wine has some cellar potential, you’ll vote for the decanter. We find it pulls back the dominance that acid and tannins often have in a newly opened bottle. This leaves room for us
to pick up the more subtle, delicate and fruity tones. The overall effect is to have the rough edges smoothed off and be able to enjoy more rounded and integrated flavours in the wine. Don’t forget to test at each new
pour, as wines open up and breath at different rates. The beauty of this device is that the wine drinker chooses according to his preference.
A quick rinse under the tap is all the care required. If tannin stains build up, a bottle brush will easily remove them. Don’t put in the dish-washer.
Aerators are very reasonably priced ($35) at Panton Hill Winery or here for $35 plus $7 postage. Great for presents... great to have one yourself!
