Be the first to review this product

Quick Overview

Perfect for one bottle of red wine. While the most common use of a decanter is to prevent sediment in an aged red wine from spoiling the wine’s clarity and brilliance, some authorities also recommend decanting young red wines to give them the opportunity to bloom. In either case, this spectacular decanter inspired by the shape of a duck contributes a breathtaking elegance to a dinner table. Standing 5-1/8 inches high at the handle, it measures 13 inches from “tail” to “beak.” Riedel crystal is used in fine restaurants all over the world and thus must stand up to frequent trips through a dishwasher. But because lead crystal has a soft surface, Riedel recommends this decanter be hand washed

Details

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 flavors. 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 honor 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 fine crystal glass suitable for every lifestyle and available at every price range. Every single decanter is a must-have for wine lovers. Made in Austria by the world’s most renowned wine-glass maker (Riedel Crystal, founded in 1756), this strikingly graceful decanter is blown from 24 percent lead crystal.
