How to improve the flavour of your favourite wine

Decanting introduces oxygen to wine. This simple step oxidizes stinky aroma compounds into less detectable smells.

It also reduces the concentration of certain acids and tannins, making wine taste smoother. In short, it’s magic.

Pour: For increased air-to-wine contact, pour wine so it distributes on the sides of the glass as it fills.


The bolder and more concentrated the wine, the longer you should wait. 15-30 minutes is a good starting point.
