Red wines need air to breathe. Full-bodied, "heavy" wines must also be sufficiently swirled for them to develop their full aroma. The best way to enhance a wine is to use a decanter. A decanter is a large glass carafe without a handle and with an extra wide bowl. The decanter is generally filled to its widest point: this provides as much wine-air contact as possible. There is no loss of aroma due to the controlled air circulation in the slender neck of the WMF decanter. The WMF decanter holds 1.5 litres.
The Basic collection includes water carafes with practical CloseUp stoppers from design agency Köhler & Wilms. The tilt mechanism opens and closes automatically when pouring and an integrated strainer holds back ice cubes and pieces of fruit. The glass carafes with matching water glasses are available in three different sizes for 0.75 to 1.5 litres, with or without handle and in fine polished Cromargan® 18/10 rust-free stainless steel. All carafes can be cleaned in the dishwasher and fit into the drinks compartment of any standard refrigerator. Those wanting to cool their water at the table can place the carafes in cooling rings, specially designed by WMF for the Basic collection.
