DID YOU KNOW?
There are two reasons for decanting.
In older wines, it removes grape-skin sediment,which impacts on flavour.
Let the sediment settle by storing your wine at an angle for a few days.
Slowly pour the wine into a decanter, retaining the sediment in the shoulder of the wine bottle.
Decanting also aerates the wine: pour quickly - bubbles give the wine more oxygen, promoting the development of flavour.
Mature wines are delicate and can lose flavour through decanting, so only decant 10 minutes before enjoying.
Decanting white wines from barriques, like white Bordeaux, sets an abundance of smells and flavours free.
