The Riedel Escargot Decanter marries beauty and function, providing a double aeration effect. Handblown by master glass blowers, each decanter is unique. The first aeration occurs when the wine is poured into the decanter exposing the wine to oxygen. (Simply lift the decanter from horizontal to a vertical position to fill the decanter.) The second contact with oxygen is triggered when the wine is poured out of the decanter and into the glass. (The oval indent is provided to hold while pouring.) The decanter construction forces fresh air through the already decanted wine a second time to fill the air space in the decanter.
The decanter stands 5 7/8″ high, and holds 1,400ML/49-3/8 oz.
