Benefits of Having a Wine Decanter

A wine decanter can make or break a good wine experience. Decanting is the process of pouring the wine out of the bottle into a special container, which lets you fully savour all the flavours and allow the wine’s full potential to shine. Here’s how it works.

  • Carefully decanting wine allows the liquid to separate from the sediment in the wine, which gets mixed around whenever you move the bottle. Leaving the sediment mixed in can leave a noticeably bitter taste.
  • You may have heard of letting your wine “breathe,” and pouring it into a decanter allows this process to take place. Allowing the wine to breathe lets the wine take in oxygen, which helps the aromas and flavours to shine.
  • High-end white wines can also benefit from being decanted: the process helps all the different flavours of the wine to come through so you get the most out of every bottle you buy.

 

To experience the full benefits of decanting your wine, give it a minimum of 15 minutes to breathe. If you want to take your experience to the next level, leave the wine for up to three hours before drinking.

Tips for Getting the Most out of Your Wine Decanter

The more you practice and taste, the better you will understand your favourite wines. In the meantime, here are a few ways to get the most out of a new wine decanter in NZ.

  • Know which wines to decant. Full-bodied wines such as Cabernet blends, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon which are high in tannins can strongly benefit from being left to aerate. Learn more about different kinds of wine and how they respond to decanting before you start, or just run some tests at home with wine tasting parties!
  • If you do decide to decant your white wines, an ice bath will help to keep them chilled. The wine community discourages putting a full decanter in the fridge because your wine can pick up the aromas of the food items stored there.
  • Once you have decanted the wine and left it alone for a while, pour it slowly into your glass and agitate it slightly by swirling your glass in a small circle—just like in the movies. This process helps the aroma of the wine to come through correctly.
