Decanter advice

Even the ancient Greeks and Romans had recognized that a young red wine can gain in flavor if you give it a little time to „breathe“ after opening it. For this purpose, the wine was transferred some time before consumption into smaller containers. However, the ancient wine lovers had no idea where this miraculous transformation of the wine came from.
Decanting the wine still gives you the same effect today. Decantation is the careful transfer of wine from the bottle to another container, usually a special one glass carafe, Decanting can have two different reasons. In older wines, especially red wines over the years forms a sediment, the so-called depot in the bottle. This is particularly the case with red wines, as the red wine contains many colors and tannins that can settle. By decanting the wine is separated from the dregs. With older wines, the decantation is very careful to bring the wine as little as possible into contact with the oxygen in the air. In order to avoid that the depot is also transferred, the wine bottle is held in front of a candle or lamp during decanting, so that the depot is easily recognizable. When decanting young wines, the goal is to bring the wine in contact with oxygen. This will not win a young wine in flavor and taste and prepare more drinking pleasure.

The length of time a wine should be decanted before it is consumed depends on the age of the wine. 10 to 15 minutes are sufficient for red wines stored to maturity. Young, strong red wines, on the other hand, can be decanted for up to two hours and sometimes longer before consumption, so that they have enough time to develop their full flavor. The Nachreifung can also by a careful pivoting of the carafebe accelerated. Particularly popular are also decanting spouts, which are stuck on the mouth of the bottle and aerate the wine during pouring.

A popular representative of this kind decanter is the menu wine decanting spout PREMIUM. Also recommended are the Menu Selection Decanting Pourer and the Vintage Decanting Pourer from the same manufacturer.

An advantage of these decanting pourers is that only the wine poured out is additionally mixed with atmospheric oxygen. The wine in the bottle is not mixed and can be kept well closed for some time.

When decanting into a special carafe, it is crucial how large the surface is, with which the wine comes in contact with air. For young wines, the decanters usually have a broad bottom and a pronounced bulbous shape. The special shape results in a particularly large surface, at which the wine has contact with the air. The decanting of young wines without depot is also referred to as Karaffieren. Decanting older, mature wines uses slim decanters or simply clean wine bottles. For mature wines increased air contact is usually not desirable. The wine can even spoil under adverse conditions with too much air contact

The simple carafe Decanter Limit by LEONARDO has the typical bulbous shape for young wines. A novelty among the carafes and decanters is the Menu Weinde decanter carafe with which, according to the manufacturer, wines can be decanted ready-to-drink in 2 minutes.

The classic decanter carafe serves not only to improve the taste of young wines. The elegant carafes are also a welcome gem on the table and speak for the good taste of the host. With the prices for these carafes there is hardly a limit to the top. The more complex the workmanship and the higher the quality of the glass or crystal glass, the more expensive the carafe. Here everyone has to decide for themselves what he likes and how much he is prepared to spend on a decanter carafe. That a beautiful decanter does not necessarily have to be expensive is shown by the very modern and straight-lined Blomus decanter carafe Alpha.
However, all decanter carafes have a small but easily forgivable disadvantage. The bulbous shape of a thorough cleaning of carafes is often not easy. In particular, when red wine residues are dried in the carafe.

By contrast, the increasingly popular decanting pourers are easy to clean under running water. Their popularity is based on the quick and flexible decanting of a glass or a whole bottle as needed. A highly recommended decanting pourer is the Enjoy Arts wine decanting spout made of matt stainless steel and glass.
