Short & Sweet on How to Decant Wine

Wine Decanter

As many of you know MaoChan is an ardent devotee of beer, having sampled about 350 different beers from around the world at this point. I long for the new conquest, the latest discovery. As I have exhausted most resources, I have turned my sights on wine. Wine is a world in which one can get lost for a lifetime and never experience it all. Flavors, aromas, colors, pungency. All things that tingle the senses and play on your feelings.

What most people don’t realize is there are rules to properly drinking a fine wine. From temperature to light exposure, these factors play into a wine’s overall taste. One thing some wines require is the act of decanting. This aeration of the wine helps unlock aromas and for older wines serves as a sleek presentation method that also removes sediment. These few rules will have you looking like a snob in no time.
