Everything you need to know about Wine Decanters

Everything you need to know about Wine Decanters

Wine decanting may not look like much, but in fact it can improve the taste of your wine by introducing oxygen. This process will soften the tannins (or astringency) of the wine and let more of the aromas out. Decanting your wine properly will also remove any sediment. Any bottle of wine will benefit from being decanted. Therefore, if you’re a wine lover you should definitely invest into purchasing a good decanter.

Glass or Crystal?

Decanters nowadays are made from either crystal or glass. Glass decanters are usually designed to be sleeker while crystal decanters can sometimes have too many grooves and patterns. A decanter with too many bells, whistles, and etchings might obscure your view of the wine. However, other than possibly obscuring your view choosing between a glass or crystal decanter is mostly about preference.

Purpose

Another thing to consider before purchasing a wine decanter is the primary purpose of the decanter. If you want to make sure your wine will be aerated properly make sure your decanter has a wide neck.

Wine decanters have the potential to be beautiful, large and sometimes cumbersome to store. Therefore, it’s important that you consider how and where you are going to store your wine decanter and if you have the space for a larger one. It’s also important that you have the right cleaning tools for your decanter. At Rosehill Wine Cellars we have a great wine decanter stand perfect for drying smaller decanters. We also have wine decanter cleaning balls designed to gently clean the bottom of your decanter.
