Why should I use a decanter?

There are two reasons for why we decant wines...decant older wines to separate it from its sediment, and decant younger wines to increase oxygenation, reveal more complexity and open up aromas and flavors.

To fully enjoy young wines (up to 10 years red and white) consider opening them 8 to 12 hours prior to consumption for oxidization or decant the wine, as this shortens the aeration process.

The main preserving element in wine is carbon dioxide which becomes part of the wine during the first (alcoholic) fermentation. Decanting diminishes the amount of carbon dioxide and "matures " the wine, allowing the bouquet to develop faster. On the pallet, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and it tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.

When decanting young wines, turn the bottle directly into the decanter and let it splash into the vessel to promote oxygenation.

When decanting off the sediment of an old wine, slowly pour the wine into the decanter without allowing any sediment to leave the bottle.

Wondering about decanting? Try the following exercise:
Using identical glasses, decant half the bottle and serve the other half directly from the bottle -- then draw your own conclusion.

 

Varietal Specific Designs

"It takes a great deal of efforts for a talented wine-maker to produce a good wine. These efforts can be ruined in no time if the wine is not served properly. The quality of the glass plays a crucial role here and Riedel produces the largest range of high quality glasses, specifically fine-tuned to fit the predominant wine varietals of the planet. Riedel makes it possible to fully appreciate all the nuances of aromas and tastes from the best wines of the world." -Michel Bettane

The Riedel glass designs are based on the exceptional characteristics of each grape variety, which in turn determines the shape, size and rim diameter of the bowl. The latest machine blown technology, in conjunction with the seamless pulled stem, offers a special design feature "architecture", which creates an indent in the bottom of the bowl, reflecting the light and adding another dimension to the lively color of wine.

"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging." - Georg Riedel
