Riedel Eisch Duck Decanter With Red Handle
Red wines, especially younger ones, need to be in contact with oxygen in order to develop their optimum bouquet. By pouring a wine into a big bellied decanter an hour or two before it is drunk, it allows maximum contact area between the wine and oxygen, allowing the wine to develop, or in essence, age. Duck decanters have their origin in the earliest wine jugs used in ancient times. Translated into a modern, attractive design, Eisch's Duck Decanter with a beautiful red handle combines traditional wine culture with today's knowledge of wine handling.
