Decanting red wine

 Anybody else got a decanter lying in a cupboard that they never use?

Yeah, me too.

Well, this weekend I had an opportunity to use a decanter and drink decanted red wine. It certainly improved the flavour of the wine – as did the excellent red wine glasses. The decanter helps the wine to breath. The glasses give the drinker the best opportunity to smell and taste the wine. Different shaped wine glasses are suitable for different types of wine – some makers of glasses have developed glasses for individual grape types.

So get that decanter dusted off and get drinking some red wine!
