HOW LONG TO DECANT WINES?

Another excellent article, this one from WineFolly.com (LINK TO ARTICLE), on how long to decant various wines, plus some decanting tips. And excerpt with links:

  • The younger and more tannic, the longer you’ll need to decant.
  • Double decanting quickly decants a closed red wine. Just pour wine from the decanter back into the bottle and repeat as needed.
  • You can swirl your decanter.
  • Wine aerators are faster than decanters but are not advisable for aged wines.
  • Hyper-decanting (wine in a blender) has been shown to greatly improve the aromas and flavors on bold red wines as well as affordable wines.
  • Learn how to decant an unfiltered wine over a candle (or even a smart phone flashlight)

Good information. Enjoy the article!
