Decant and aerate wine to improve flavor

  1. 1. Decant AndAerate Wines To Improve Taste
  2. 2. Many people drink wine by • popping the cork • pouring it into a glass • starting to sipThis isn’t the way to get theMost enjoyment for the dollars you spend
  3. 3. Decanting and AeratingWine Will Result In ADramatic Difference InThe Aroma And TasteOf The Wine
  4. 4. Decanting As simple as pouring the wine from the bottle into another, more attractive container
  5. 5. Decanting There are a wide variety of decanters on the market Waterford and Riedel are top choices for crystal decanters
  6. 6. Decanting The main purposes of decanting are to remove sediments and aerate the wine. Sediments are little particles floating around in the wine They don’t mean the wine is bad
  7. 7. Decanting The main purposes of decanting are to remove sediments and aerate the wine. Getting rid of sediments is easy by passing the wine through a filter and aerating funnel as you decant the wine
  8. 8. Decanting The main purposes of decanting are to remove sediments and aerate the wine. This is NOT a very effective way to aerate wine It’s only good for older wines not needing much decanting
  9. 9. Aeration Gives young wines with excess tannins a smoother, more balanced, less bitter taste …and reduces carbon dioxide that masks the aroma of the wine
  10. 10. Aeration Different aeration techniques depend on how aggressively you want to aerate the wine Pick the aeration technique based on how bitter the wine is and how much time you are willing to wait
  11. 11. Aeration The first step is to open the bottle and taste the wine to see how much aeration it needs
  12. 12. Aeration – Least Aggressive Let the wine sit in the bottle Not that effective Works for older wines that require minimum aeration
  13. 13. Aeration – Slightly Aggressive Aerate through a filter/funnel and then let the wine sit in a decanter Good for wines that require brief aeration
  14. 14. Aeration – More Aggressive Use a commercial wine aerator There are two types Avoid the ones that fit into the wine bottle directly. There are some wine bottles that won’t work.
  15. 15. Aeration – More Aggressive Use a commercial wine aerator The Vinturi lets you pour through the aerator directly into a glass or decanter Plus it comes with a sediment filter
  16. 16. Aeration – More Aggressive Use a commercial wine aerator Perfect for typical $15 to $20 bottles of wine
  17. 17. Aeration – Most Aggressive Use a blender Decant into a blender and blend the wine for 15 seconds. Radical but very effective for young cheap wines
  18. 18. Have a wine decanter, filter and funnel and always use them for older wines
  19. 19. Get a Vinturi aerator and use itin preference to the funnel and filter for typical wines
  20. 20. Have a blender handy for inexpensive bottles of wineDecant directly into the blender andblend for 15 seconds
