Using a wine funnel makes a lot of sense because it enhances your wine's flavor and characteristics in several important ways. Not only does it allow it to breathe and oxidize, but it helps release its aromas. At Wine Devices, we offer unique wine decanters with and without a wine decanting funnel, giving you the latitude to decant according to your desires.
Whatever your approach, decanting is extremely important for another reason - to remove sediments that may have accumulated over the years. Sediments can be very common in red wines, especially those aged five years or longer. Also, crumbling or brittle corks can have a negative impact on all types of wine. Thus, aerating can bring out flavor and notes that may be hidden or otherwise missed. Decanted wine is often considered to be smoother and less bitter than non-decanted wine.
Our funnels are stainless steel, so the flavor of the wine passing through is not negatively impacted. Some people prefer to use a wine funnel with strainer for maximum aeration and sediment removal, while others use a stand-alone funnel. We offer both types of filtration, as well as a stand-alone funnel screen.
We look forward to providing you the ultimate wine decanting funnel of your choice, and whatever other supplies you need, to greatly enhance your experience for years to come.
