Metrokane 2500 Houdini Decanter w/ Funnel and Strainer
This Houdine decanter with wine shower funnel and sediment strainer is a perfect set for red wines. The decanter is made from hand blown lead-free crystalline quartz, is indented in the bottom for ease of use and has a capacity of 48 ounces. The sediment strainer is placed in the shower funnel prior to decanting to help remove the sediments from an aged bottle of wine. Pour the wine through the wine shower funnel to help oxygenate the wine. Watch it shower down the sides of the decanter. This is truly a beautiful and functional set all in one.
- The Houdini Crystal Decanter
(48 oz. capacity) has been individually hand-blown of lead-free crystalline quartz. The decanter bottom is inset for ease of pouring. Its graceful shape adds a touch of elegance to any dining table.
- The Sediment Strainer
Red wines often develop some sediment while aging. This does not affect the quality of the wine. It is easily removed by placing the strainer in the shower-funnel before pouring wine into the decanter.
- The Wine-Shower Funnel
Creates a shower when you pour wine into the decanter. This allows the wine to absorb more oxygen (aeration) in a shorter time. Poured through the wine shower-funnel, wine can be served immediately after decanting.
DECANTING: GETTING THE BEST OUT OF A BOTTLE OF WINE
Decanting is simply transferring the wine from the bottle to another container. Little understood and practiced by few, decanting, when done in a restaurant demonstrates to the patron a serious dedication to optimum wine service. When a wine is decanted it invariably attracts the attention of other patrons at neighboring tables. For the restaurateur, this could eventually mean an increase in wine sales.
At home it affords a great way for friends and family to increase their enjoyment of a wine after it has been decanted.
WINE AND AIR
Many wine drinkers notice, it is only when the bottle is nearly finished that the wine seems to come into its own. It is simple. It takes time for a wine to react to contact with air. The swirling of wine in a glass hastens this action. For this reason wine glasses should only be half-filled. It is also why larger wine glasses are preferred.
Having been cooped up in a bottle for any number of years, a wine, especially an older wine, needs an opportunity to open up, to bloom, before it can reveal its fullest flavor and bouquet. Decanting is an accelerated form of letting a wine "breathe".
YOUNG WINES AND DECANTING
Strangely enough, young wines benefit greatly from decanting. The oxygen they contain has actually had little time to take effect. The air in the decanter achieves change rapidly. It means you get more of what you paid for and lets you enjoy literally twice as much bouquet and aroma from the wine.
Pouring is slow, continuous and steady. Decanting is not a difficult procedure.
Enjoy one of the most impressive phases of wine serving. Decant! To your health.
