Let’s Talk Turkey! To decant or not to decant that is the question!Ask The Wine Ladies December 2012

Dear The Wine Ladies,

We have been invited to my month-in-laws for Thanksgiving dinner, and I would like to surprise her with a decanter as a gift. She is just getting into wine and I thought she might enjoy this surprise instead of flowers or chocolates.

Would I be able to find one that would fall into my limited budget of around $35-$50? I’d like to share a few words of wisdom with my gift as well, if you wouldn’t mind offering a few tips it would be greatly appreciated.

Should all red wines be decanted and what are the main reasons for decanting?

Modus Marvels… Ruffino Modus 2008 IGT Toscana leaves us smacking our lips

Beautiful elegant wine, lush with silky tannins elicits oohs and ahhs as our impromptu gathering of friends sip away and break bread with a healthy wedge of gorgonzola and some sausage.

Modus is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the typical trio to make up a Super Tuscan. This wine Modus, is so named due to the care taken in each varietal being individually picked when ripe and aged in small oak barrels. The result, a mouthful of plum, cherry, a touch of chocolate and with vibrant acidity and lively finish.

The label of Modus represents a modern interpretation of a historical property  “The property  “The rose of the winds is intertwined with the elements which form the soul of a great wine; the vine, the sun, the soil, the life, the time, the fruit, the manner, the wine”http://www.ruffino.com/pagine/pagina.aspx?ID=Poggio_Casci001&L=EN

Ask The Wine Ladies…Are wine diamonds a girl’s best friend?

Dear Wine Ladies,

At a recent dinner party I attended the hostess noticed a small amount of sediment.It  looked like tiny pieces of glass at the bottom of a bottle of white wine from Germany. I was a little hesitant to drink the wine. However, one of the guests assured us the wine was fine and there was no cause to worry. What were those little pebble-like stones and are they really harmless?

Jennifer, New York

Dear Jennifer,

Those pebble-like stones you are describing are commonly referred to as “wine diamonds” or weinstein which literally translates to “wine stones” in German speaking countries. What exactly are they and how did they end up at the bottom of the bottle? These wine diamonds are actually harmless crystalline deposits that naturally separate from wines during fermentation and aging. Potassium acid tartrate, the potassium salt of tartaric acid is the major component of this sediment. The presence of tartaric acid, along with malic acid are very important in wine making as they help provide good structure, fruit flavours, crispness on the palate and an increased lifespan of the wine.

The majority of winemakers today recognize that the consumer is alarmed or put off by the presence of these crystalline deposits. They however are harmless. Rather than educating the public, many wineries employ a process called “cold stabilization” prior to bottling. This involves chilling the wine to just below zero degrees causing the potassium bitartrate to crystallize. The wine is then filtered and bottled. Having the wine undergo this process prior to leaving the winery assures a clean filtered wine with no sediment. In cases where the wine does not undergo cold stabilization at the winery, this precipitation of the tartrate could happen during cold weather transport or cold storage conditions.
