14) Final Touch Funnel

The “Final Touch” oxygenates or aerates younger red and some white wines to help release the bouquet. Allowing wine to breath (as it is sometimes referred to) is allowing it to be exposed to air after opening. The benefit from oxygenating wine can mean an experience of up to twice as much scent and flavor. The “Final Touch” performs this enhancement without a decanter, right on the end of the bottle so that you can pour directly into the glass. Even helps trap sediment.
