Coravin, maker of the popular wine preservation opener by the same name, has announced its new wine aeration technology – the Coravin Aerator.
This accessory allows drinkers to enjoy the taste of decanted wine without pulling the cork, the company says. Engineered for exclusive use with the Coravin Wine Preservation Opener, people can pour aerated wine in any amount – by the sip, glass or more – and protect what is left in the bottle for weeks, months or even years.
Unlike traditional bar tools that use gravity to aerate wine, the Coravin Aerator utilizes the System’s pressurized argon gas. The pressure behind the pour allows the small spout-sized device to force wine through 24 holes, creating small jets that expand the surface area of wine exposed to air.
“This process makes the Coravin Aerator effective in rapidly aerating the wine and yielding silky, smooth, and aromatic results,” the company says. “Preliminary tests indicated that utilizing the new aerator is equivalent to decanting wine for approximately 45 minutes.”
The device retails for $69.95 per unit. It fits securely on the spout of all Coravin Wine Preservation Openers to aerate any amount of wine. Simply press on the tip and use your Coravin System as you normally would.
The Coravin Aerator follows the recent launch of the Coravin Screw Cap ($29.95). Every Coravin accessory is compatible with all models of its Wine Preservation Openers. The Aerator and all Coravin products are available for purchase online at coravin.com and at select retailers.
