How to make each glass a peak experience. Allowing wine time to “breathe” is now a thing of the past.
There are a lot of reasons to oxygenate wine, and there are ways to do so without the long wait of decanting.
Oxygen reacts with various molecules in wine, altering the chemical structure of hydrogen sulfides, breaking down sulfites, and lengthening the molecular chains of tannins. These changes ultimately unlock the aroma and reveal a silky smooth flavor.
The Velv Wine Oxygenator
The Velv Wine Oxygenator is unique in that it creates the “Velv-Effect,” which brings optimal aroma and mouthfeel together for the first time. In addition, the Oxygenator opens up wine in a tiny fraction of the time it takes to decant. It’s also far more effective than aerators, which show little improvement, if any. Better still, it allows users to customize wine preparation for different palates.
Its proprietary PUREOXYGEN technology gently circulates 99.5 percent pure oxygen into the wine, opening its aroma, softening its mouthfeel and revealing its true flavor—in just a few minutes. With the Velv Oxygenator, red wines can reach their flavor peaks in about 5 to 7 minutes, and white wines that require aging can be prepared in about 3 to 5 minutes.
“The Velv Wine Oxygenator causes a wine’s aroma and mouthfeel to peak at the same time, revealing its full flavor. We call it the “Velv Effect,” and it’s something traditional decanting and aeration can’t achieve,” says Wine Oxygenator designers. The Velv Oxygenator starter kit is priced at $300 and includes the Velv Wine Oxygenator, one Velv PUREOXYGEN capsule, and a Velv Protective Case.
Coravin Model Two Elite Wine Access System
With an updated needle that pours wine 20% faster than its predecessor, the lighter, more streamlined Coravin Model Two Elite offers wine enthusiasts the opportunity to sample wine by the glass without committing to the whole bottle. It uses the same innovative access technology to leave the cork in place, safeguarding wine from oxidation thus allowing the wine to evolve naturally. The Coravin System (Weight: 0.79kg; includes 2 x pressurized Coravin capsules containing argon and a storage base) also enables wine drinkers to access wine across multiple bottles during a single occasion.
IFavine ISommelier Smart Decanter
IFavine ISommelier Smart Decanter system is designed to filter ambient air of impurities and aerate wine with a flow of highly concentrated purified oxygen, enhancing flavours and aromas with results akin to years of cellaring. A digital screen displays the wine’s name, vintage and a progress bar, whilst a touch panel allows you to calibrate the process to your palette and save settings for future use.
Rabbit Aerating Decanter System
Rabbit Aerating Decanter System breaks red wine down into tiny droplets that spray down the side of the decanter, instantly picking up oxygen. The Super-Aerating system includes a hand-blown crystal decanter, crystal glass wine-spray funnel and super-fine sediment screen.
Aervana is the world’s first electric wine aerator. It provides an innovative, effective and fun way to aerate a variety of wine. With a push of a button, the Aervana can provide aeration to a whole bottle or single glass in seconds as opposed to hours in a decanter. It is clean, simple, and can aerate without lifting, aiming, holding, or spilling. It works on all red and white wines.
Twister Wine Aerator & Decanter with Stand Set
Twister Wine Aerator & Decanter with Stand Set includes patented mouth-blown, double-walled, 3-phase glass aerator which instantly multiplies oxygenation. Phase 1 catches any sediment while introducing oxygen as the wine flows by; phase 2 allows additional exposure to oxygen; phase 3 directs the wine through the spiral, dispersing it into the decanter. The Mouthblown glass decanter is specially designed to hold the aerator. The aerator has an integral stainless-steel sediment filter. The set includes a stainless-steel stand for holding and storing glass aerator.
Vinturi Red Wine aerator
The award-winning Red Wine aerator from Vinturi opens and develops red wines in the time it takes to pour a glass – no more waiting as with traditional decanters. How it works: It is simple. Place a glass under the Vinturi Tower Set and pour wine through the opening. When wine is poured into the Vinturi, its internal patented design creates an increase in the wine’s velocity while simultaneously decreasing its pressure. This difference in pressure draws in the proper amount of air, which mixes with the wine for the right amount of time, and delivers a better bouquet, enhanced flavors, and a smoother finish – the absolute perfect aeration. It’s that easy.
