A wine decanter of wine a beautiful and useful gift.

A beautiful and necessary accessory for the true wine drinker is a decant decanter. This wine decanter is not only beautiful to put down but has an important function for the taste of the wine.

Wijnengeschenken.nl has a nice selection decanter decanters and puts you to attend its operation.

You decanted wine for two reasons:

1. To breathe the wine. Because the wine to the air is exposed, smells and tastes pretty. Especially young red wine has a benefit. The tannin in red wine is in fact softened by exposure to the air and the wine will be less 'hard' tastes.

2. Through the years, there is created at the bottom of the wine sediment. We call this dross. Especially in older red wines, this is the case. Lees arises after a year or 8. This sediment may taste bitter and the wine is not pretty clear.

So both young and old red wine tastes better if you pour them out into a decanter carafe. With old wine, you usually have to keep lying, it is important that this about two or three days before you plan to drink it straight sets. For example, the sediment may settle to the bottom of the bottle.

Then you need to ensure that the wine decanter is clean. To remove any debris from previous use, you can clean it with lukewarm water and a Steradent tablet.

With old wine is recommended to decant it before serving to about 10 to 15 minutes. You have a candle in here to be able to look good in the bottle. It is convenient if you put the candle on the table and keep the bottle in one hand, and the carafe in the other hand. Uncork the bottle gently. The bottle hold obliquely, with the neck above the candle. Pour wine slowly and look through the neck to the candle. So good to see when to stop. Namely when the dross is likely to come along.

In young wine you do not use a candle. And this you can pour the best one hour before serving in the decanter. The faster you donate, the more air gets in and the better it is for the taste of young wine.

A bottle which is decanted once, is limited shelf life. The wine reacts with oxygen in the air. This oxidation of the wine ages and taste deteriorates. Older wines are often already highly oxidized and can fast to talk into contact with oxygen deteriorate. The best is to drink it immediately.

At wijnengeschenken.nl we have some nice sets with carafes decanter and matching wine glasses. A suitable gift for any wine lover.
