Unless you\u2019re drinking a vintage red wine, there\u2019s absolutely nothing refined about keeping in its original bottle. Same goes for aged whisky. But still, an aged, expensive drink would look infinitely more appealing in an elegant glass decanter.\r\n\r\nThat\u2019s where Riedel comes in. Riedel, the Austrian design firm, has launched a new range of sleek and alluring decanters that would look right at home in a gallery. Instead, each piece is here to improve the aesthetic of your home and the flavours of your wines.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe choice of a new decanter should go beyond which shape or style you like best as each decanter is designed to improve wines and extend their lifespan once uncorked. For instance, the coils and curvature of the Curly Decanter help to \u201ccharge\u201d and aerate wine. The twists of the decanter form a soft and playful spiral, with a closed \u201ctail end\u201d and wider spout for easy pouring.\r\n\r\nThe design of the Ultra Magnum Decanter is a nod to tradition, with its swooping curves and broad base. The size of this decanter makes it perfect for young wines, as it offers a large surface area for the wine to be exposed to oxygen after decanting.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMy personal favourite - The mouth-blown, handmade Mamba, the latest design by Maximilian J. Riedel, which is redolent of a sleek mamba snake. As the wine flows through each bend, it is double-decanted, achieving something that what would take hours of decanting in a typical bowl-shaped carafe.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThat\u2019s a small study of the collection which comprises of over 10 new designs. Several of the new decanters are available now while the others launch over the coming months. The decanters aren\u2019t cheap, but if you\u2019re the type of person who seeks vintage wine or aged whisky\u2019s than price isn\u2019t your biggest concern. It's flavour.\r\nCheck it out\r\n \r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
