Waterford® Crystal John Rocha Collection Black Cut 42 oz Decanter

A stunning silhouette that sparkles like an exquisite jewel! This John Rocha black cut decanter features an architectural design that perfectly captures the Rocha aesthetic. The Black Collection combines two proven elements: the black cased crystal and the essence of John Rocha at Waterford Crystal. Completely modern yet totally reflective of classic Waterford DNA.

The Black Collection crystal is the perfect balance of texture, form, and detail bringing both brilliance and modern simplicity to any space. John Rocha, a name that evokes simple elegance and clean contemporary vision. The Hong Kong born fashion designer who lives in Ireland, has been designing his unique collection for Waterford Crystal since 1997. His design sensibilities represent the fusion of shape and texture, adding brilliance and simple beauty to any home. Each piece in the John Rocha collection is a work of art, meant to make a statement, yet functional for everyday luxuries.

Additional Information:
Measurements: 10.5"H x 7.5"W; weighs 4 lbs. Made of crystal. For indoor display. Made in Hungary.

Care Instructions:
Fine crystal should be hand washed separately in warm soapy water, rinsed thoroughly and dried with a lint free cloth. When washing and drying stemware, don't twist the bowl in the opposite direction to the stem as this can cause damage. We do not recommend using dishwasher. Avoid pouring iced liquids or very hot water into crystal as extreme temperatures can crack or break your crystal. The finely made rims are the most fragile part of your crystal glass. Do not turn upside down while drying or storing.

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.
