The Riedel Merlot Wine Decanter is the latest addition to our collection by Riedel, the world-famous makers of fine crystal. The casual, carafe shape of this decanter makes everyday wine service exceptional. Classically contoured of lead-free crystal, it gives panache to vin ordinaire, but is no less elegant for decanting and serving your finest selections. See More Product Details
My wife and I attended a wine glass comparison event by George, the tenth generation Reidel from Austria when we were visiting Austin Texas. It was quite eye opening.
In any event the spotlight turned to decanters. George explained that decanter makes a difference as it releases the preservatives and CO2 thus opening up the young wine more(in older wines this would have occurred over a longer span through cork-outside air exchange). He said once you pour it into the decanter, give it a shake for 10-12 seconds. Then he put the mike at the mouth of the decanter, and the volume from the above process was clearly audible. You'd never think this is what's going on!
This decanter is perfect for that purpose. Give it a shake, maybe two 10 second shakes in 2 minutes, and you'll be ready to pour out and reuse.
I am glad Reidel has come out with a lower priced item in this economy. It's a double win as you can buy younger (read cheaper) reds and enjoy them.
This is a sleek, stylish little decanter. We are learning about ways the breathe wines, and I think if we pour with the aerator and use the decanter to 'stand and breathe' we can certainly release even more of the flavors. I'm posting the size as a "con" -- if you are serving a large party you'll be refilling and standing this; but for a few friends it will be perfect.
When I ordered it, it was supposed to be "In Stock". When I hadn't been charged after a week, I inquired and found out that it was on backorder. I would have preferred getting it sooner, but otherwise I have no complaints.
This decanter was recommended to me by a wine expert. It is the perfect size for a 750ml bottle. It's easy to grip and use, and it takes up little storage room. After using the decanter, give it a quick rinse, fill it with hot water, drop in a denture cleaning tablet, wait about 15 minutes, then thoroughly rinse and dry, and its ready for the next use.
I bought this at a great deal at XMAS, and have used it many times since. I love the sleek design, it's easy to hold, pour from and clean. Ran through the dishwasher and came out great. Best of all it doesn't take up a lot of room on the table!! I use it for all reds, not just Merlot. Also use it as a water globlet. Loved it so much bought another for a friend.
This is a graceful little decanter that I use when I want to pour just a little bit of wine. It holds two glasses (about 10 oz.) if one fills it to the widest point. This also has the happy coincidence of aerating the wine quite well. The decanter glass is thin and light, and it generally pours well. I fortunately have not had the opportunity to drop it, so I cannot attest to its durability, but it seems to take my clumsy hands without complaint. - pjw
The size is perfect for the two of us. Use the decanter to help aerate the wine and serve from. Decanter has the feel of a fine wine glass. Haven't tested the dishwasher safe part. Just feels a tad too delicate for that.Hand washes easily.
This decanter is so tiny that you should only pour half of your bottle of wine in it. I had bought it as a gift, but it was so small I kept it and will use for tea in the summer. Cute and simple, which I do love.
Don't let the photo fool you. This is nothing like the Riedel Cabernet decanter. It's HALF the size and will BARELY fit a 750ml bottle of wine. If you only open 375ml bottles, this is perfect. If not, don't waste your money.
