With Coravin wine preservation systems, you can keep your favourite bottles open for months or even years! Sound too good to be true? Read on to find out how it works.
We’re fast becoming fans of the Coravin wine preservation systems in the Sassy office. We tried out the Coravin Sparkling (it was tough but someone had to!), and love the convenience and affordability of the Coravin Pivot. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the Coravin Timeless Six and getting very excited about a special Chinese New Year discount.
How is Coravin different from other wine stoppers?
Even the most amateur wine connoisseur knows that once you open a bottle of wine it is exposed to air and it starts oxidising. While a little breathing and aeration as you enjoy your glass is perfect, if you don’t finish the bottle in one sitting the quality begins to decline. Being the responsible adults that we are, we’ve embraced drinking in moderation and would much prefer to enjoy a bottle over a few sittings rather than feel the pressure to drink it all at once (can’t let a good drop go to waste after all!).
Regular wine stoppers seal your bottle, limiting the air that gets inside. The Coravin Timeless is different, it pierces the cork and replaces the wine with pure argon gas as you pour. Your precious wine is never exposed to air or the risk of oxidisation. What you’re left with is a glass of wine as fresh as the day you opened the bottle. Every glass is as good as the first!
How does the Coravin Timeless wine preservation system work?
With the Coravin Timeless series, you can pour all your favourite wines without ever pulling the cork. Match a chilled Chardonnay with your cheese and charcuterie, and follow it up with a bold Burgundy to pair with your dinner. And don’t forget something sweet for dessert!
Using the system is easy. Align the SmartClamps with your bottle, and push down – this will insert the needle through the cork. As you pour, the wine will run through the needle and pure argon gas from the Coravin Pure capsule will be inserted in its place. As the needle comes out the cork expands back into place. Easy!
Each Coravin Pure capsule will let you pour up to 15 glasses of your favourite drop (three full bottles) and they’ve cleverly designed the needle to be off-centre so as to not pierce the cork in the same place.
What about your screw-cap wines? Of course, the team at Coravin have thought of a solution! Simply attach the special Coravin screw caps and the needle of your Timeless device will pierce this instead.
