Decanting

Postby john.p » Wed Nov 02, 2011 2:10 pm

Hey guys,

I'm a bit confused about what wines to decant?

I know usually younger wines and stronger (Cab?) wines are the ones you want to decant, but should you do it for all wines?

typically reds yes White no need to. The older the Vintage you will need to decant so it can breath for a bit

or just get one of these and poor into each glass... been using them for years now and get the same job done faster :lol:

Very good, sir! Thanks. I had no idea you could actually "quicky" decant. I've always been under the impression that you need time for the chemical reactions to occur.

Thanks!
