DetailsA variety of the wines winged dove, the Paloma is a bird with a curvilinear form that lends itself well to this stylish decanter from Riedel. Wine is poured into the widest opening in the "tail" of the vessel and poured from the narrower curved neck. The "tail" a natural hand-hold, enables a sure grip, and the slender, angled neck with its elliptical mouth provides a perfect dripless pour.
Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.(Thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)Measurements
