A decanter, is a vessel that is used when drinking wine. It can allow the wine fully contact with the air, so that the aroma of the wine can fully evaporate, and at the same time, it can isolate the sediment in the wine.
Before we use the decanter, we have to make sure that is all wines need to use the decanter? Actually not.
1. Red wine that has not reached the appropriate drinking period or has heavy tannins
2. Mellow white wine
3. Natural wine
4. Top quality wine
In addition, there are some wines that we do not need decanter, such as cheap wine, refreshing style, elegant style of weak tannin and very old wine.
First, slowly pour the wine into the decanter. During the pouring process, oxygen enters the wine to accelerate oxidation;
Secondly, hold the bottle of the decanter tightly and shake the wine in the decanter gently;
Then, let the wine stand still and wait for a hangover. According to the style of the wine, the hangover time generally ranges from 10 minutes to a few hours, and some even open the bottle to hang out one day in advance.
In addition, let ’s take a look at the precautions for sobering. First, before sobering, we need to calculate the shape and model of the decanter according to different wines. The diameter of the decanter and the length of the stem of the decanter directly affect the contact area between the wine and the air, that is to say, they can control the degree of oxidation of the wine, thereby determining the emission of the wine and the richness of the taste. Generally speaking, for a young wine, a relatively flat decanter will be used. This flat decanter has a wide belly and can promote oxidation. For old and fragile wines, carefully choose a decanter with a relatively small diameter. At the same time, a decanter with a stopper should be selected to prevent excessive oxidation and make the wine aging.
