Decanting is mostly suited for older wines and even for mature sweet wines which will be showing layered complexity as well as for tannic red young wines
This decanter shape is petite and suitable to be handle by wine enthusiasts who would like a decanter that does not take too much space at home.
To decant wine, the wine is poured into the decanter leaving the sediment in the original bottle, and the clear liquid is transferred to the decanter.
Decanting a young wine (without sediment) is one of the easiest to do. All you need to do is just pour it into the decanter. Let it sit for twenty minutes or so before you serve it, and you will notice a dramatic increase in subtlety and complexity. If you can, continue tasting the wine over a period of hours as the wine would keep evolving and improving.
Decanting older wine (wine with sediment) on the other hand requires more attention. You may even ruin it by overexposing it to oxygen before serving. Thus, it is highly recommended that you should only decant older wine immediately before serving.
