Vacu Vin Swirling Carafe: Stylish wine aerator carafe, the perfect gift: give it a swirl!
The delights of drinking wine include a penchant for swirling. The boffins have been taking a look at this, and the American Chemical Society and the University of California have explored scientific bases for, among other things, swirling. According to the scientists, swirling definitely, scientifically improves the flavours of wine. The increased oxygen releases flavour compounds to ‘perceive and experience’, they report. This is rather good,in light of the arrival of the Vacu Vin Swirling Carafe. For starters, it looks smart and stylish, and makes an interesting table centrepiece. A gentle push starts it turning and rolling, gently swirling the wine, and, as we now have it from science, releasing its depth and flavour.It really does work—which isn’t surprising as Vacu Vin do know their stuff. It is simple, yet ingenious. The handcrafted glass carafe sits on a pressed cork base, set on at an angle and centred with a lazy susan mechanism which allows the smooth rotation of the base. All of which means you can put this on your present list and be sure your favourite wine drinker will be delighted and impressed.
