RIEDEL 'Escargot' Decanter
Please note: We only deliver in JERSEY, Channel Islands.
The Escargot decanter is an adorable and functional addition to your dining table. As with some of RIEDEL's snake decanters, the Escargot 'double decants' wines through its smart design. When sitting upright on your table, an air vaccum appears in the body of the decanter. As you tip to pour, the vaccum forces fresh air though the already decanted wine, creating a bubbling gurgle. This vigorous process makes it ideal for young wines.
This decanter is designed for a single bottle of wine.
This pack contains a single piece.
This product is handmade. Please handwash only.
RIEDEL recommends: Use bottle cleaners to remove stains from the decanter.
RIEDEL WHOLE-HEARTEDLY BELIEVES ALL WINES - YOUNG AND OLD, RED, WHITE OR SPARKLING - CAN BE ENHANCED BY DECANTING.
There are two reasons why we decant wines:
Decant an older wine to separate it from its sediment.
Decant a younger wine to increase aeration, revealing more complexity, and opening up aromas and flavours.
On the palate, decanted wine expresses higher levels of fruit in red wines and tends to integrate and smooth out tannins.
We offer a wide range of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-made decanters to honour good wines with the treatment they deserve.
Every hand-made product is crafted by highly talented master glass blowers, using glass making techniques which date back more than 2000 years.
All decanters are made from crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range.
Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers.
