What Does a Wine Aerator Do?
by Avery at ilovewine.com
You may have noticed that fancy restaurants prefer to open your red wine and leave it to aerate or ‘breathe’ for a while before pouring your glass, or that you are encouraged to swirl your wine glass when tasting a new bottle for the first time. Often you will see wine aerators used professionally. This is because exposing your wine to air causes oxidation. When this happens, the unwanted and volatile compounds in the wine, such as ethanol and sulfites will evaporate more quickly and leave you to appreciate more of the aromas and floral bouquets of your wine.
However, leaving your bottle of red wine to breathe before pouring can be frustrating for most wine drinkers, even the very patient ones. The good news is that by purchasing a wine aerator, you can speed up this process and aerate your wine instantly. Aerators come in a range of sizes and designs, with many different features. However, they all provide a small chamber where wine mixes with the necessary oxygen levels before then reaching your glass. By first moving the wine through this chamber, the volatile compounds evaporate and leave only the best tasting wine. This process can also eliminate unwanted sediment from your glass.
We suggest the Menu Red Wine Decanter Wine Breather by Peter Orsig!
The elegant Menu Winebreather Carafe adds 10x more oxygen to your wine in under 2 minutes. Simply press the decanter onto the top of an opened bottle of wine and flip it over so the wine pours into the decanter. You can serve the wine directly from the beautifully designed carafe, or flip it back over once it's done to pour the aerated wine back to serve directly from the original bottle. The Menu Winebreather Carafe is the most effective aerator on the market and was the undisputed winner of a Eurofins aerating test.
