People also ask, does the shape of a decanter matter?

Which is why the shape of the decanter can matter, though only to a certain extent. The size of the opening will obviously determine how much air, and therefore oxygen, is going to reach your wine. The more surface area, the more contact between wine and oxygen and the less time you'll need to decant.

Furthermore, are decanters worth it? Sometimes, Yes. If you're under the impression that decanting wine is a big production best left to wine snobs drinking expensive bottles, it's time to reconsider. Decanting a wine is a simple process that can benefit even inexpensive table wines.

Then, what should I look for in a decanter?

Choose a wide neck decanter for ideal aeration. Because you'll be able to taste more, wide neck decanters are great for making young wines taste complex. Wide neck decanters are also better for cheap wines, as aeration will make the wine taste richer. Generally, wide neck decanters are easier to clean.

What is the difference between a carafe and a decanter?

To infer, the difference between a decanter and a carafe is that of shape, style, and purpose. While Carafes are elongated vessels used to serve water, juice, and wine, decanters are specifically meant to aerate and oxygenize wine for special occasions.
