Care Instructions:
When washing by hand, avoid using scouring pads and/or abrasive detergents. To prevent spotting, combine quarter cup ammonia with a mild lemon detergent. Rinse in clean water and air dry on a rack. Clean vases and decanters by filling them half-full with moderately hot water, a small amount of mild detergent, two tablespoons of white vinegar or ammonia and 1/2 cup uncooked rice. Swirl the rice around for a few minutes to remove residue. Rinse well with moderately hot water and air dry, upside down, on a rack.

Aerating & Decanting Wine
Aeration is a process that exposes wine to air in order to mellow its flavor and enhance its aroma. Air breaks down the wine's tannins, smoothing out the flavor. It also eliminates the stale aroma from the bottle. The goal of aeration is to maximize wine's contact with the surrounding air. For this reason, simply popping the cork is insufficient; so be sure to swirl it in a wine glass or let it sit in a larger vessel.

A common misconception is that all bottles of wine need to be given time to breathe. This is not always the case. Light whites gain no discernible improvement from aeration and wines older than 40 years can lose their flavor if exposed to air for too long. However, most reds and richer whites do benefit from being allowed to breathe. Different wines call for various aeration times, so be sure to consult with your wine retailer regarding aeration for each specific type and brand.

As soon as you open a bottle, pour a small amount into your glass for a taste test. Wine is subjective in that there is no right or wrong flavor. If the wine is to your liking, then it's time to drink!

For wine that has aged for some time, a decanter is highly recommended for removing sediment. Sediment occurs in wine when pigments and tannins within the wine break down, leaving behind a harmless but bitter residue. Not only is sediment displeasing to the mouth, but it's unattractive to the eye.

When decanting a wine with sediment, it's best to let the bottle stand upright and undisturbed for 24 hours. This allows the sediment to collect at the bottom of the bottle. After this time, slowly pour your wine into a cleaned decanter. Watch the wine as it passes through the bottle's neck, stopping your pour upon the first sign of sediment.

The final result of this process leaves a decanter of pure wine and a bottle with some sediment-heavy wine left in it. While the remaining un-decanted wine may not taste pristine, it makes a wonderful addition to gravy or red sauces. In fact, many wine enthusiasts pride themselves on their ability to find new and exciting uses for sediment-laden wine.

Proper decanting alters wine for the better, softening its bite and further developing its aromas and flavors.




About Waterford®
A name synonymous with elegance and luxury, Waterford was founded in 1783 by George and William Penrose in the ancient Viking city of Waterford. From the start, the principle that would guide the company for more than 200 years was simple: handcraft crystal "as fine as any in Europe...in the most elegant style."

The Penrose's knew the secret to mixing just the right minerals and glass to produce crystal with beautiful and mysterious qualities. When tapped, it sang sweetly. When touched, it felt warm and soft. The magnificent pieces crafted in Waterford's early period set the standards now recognized as the hallmarks of Waterford Crystal.
