What to look for in a wine decanter
Before we start with the business of reviewing wine decanters, let’s first look at what it takes to have a top-rated wine decanter. To the open eye, a wine decanter can often be seen as large jar with a wide base, but to you, wine lovers, it is so much more that that. Here is what you need to look at before picking your wine decanter;
The quality of the material
A decanter is only as good as the material used to make it. Some might be wondering how to check that as most of them are usually made with glass. It is pretty easy actually; a good decanter should have a relatively thick glass to avoid easy breakages. The glass should also be lead-free to ensure that the chips don’t fall into your wine. That said, you must take care of your decanter.
This is where it gets interesting. It is not just about pouring wine into the decanter; it is also about pouring out the wine. The sprout should be asymmetrical to enable for smoother transfer.
Do you want a base that stands on its own or do you want one that is supported? By answering that, you will have made considerable headways in choosing a decanter.
It goes without saying that how much you are willing to spend matters a lot. From expensive wine decanter to budget friendly ones, you get what you wish for in the market.
