Many people are unaware that you can easily decant, for example, a white wine, and that white wines often benefit from being left to breathe to soften flavours and release the aromas.
“White wine can certainly be decanted, and a rich Chardonnay will benefit particularly”, says Christian Aarø, a sommelier.
Eva Solo’s new decanter carafe gently decants your wine through the integrated funnel, which is perforated with countless small holes.
Running through these tiny holes and down the inside of the carafe, the wine is gently and effectively aerated, while the large surface area created by the carafe allows the wine to oxidise further.
The base features a removable cool element which must be placed in the freezer before use, and which keeps the wine nice and chilled for many hours.
Tip: Always keep the cool element in the freezer so it is ready for unexpected guests.
