Wine agent to join the investment, wine sobering is very important, to understand the sobering, if in English simple translation is airing, or breath, let the wine breathe. This effect is usually applied to young wines, because in order to avoid oxidation of the wine (remember, oxygen is the great enemy of wine), the brewer adds sulfur dioxide. Sulfur into the wine to prevent oxidation. When the cork is put into the bottle, oxygen and sulfur will be added between the liquid and the cork to prevent oxygen from entering the wine through the tiny gap of the cork. Therefore, when young wine is in bottle opening, the so-called deodorant will appear because the sulfide does not disperse with time. This problem can be eliminated only by decanting and changing bottles.
How does wine wake up?
Some people think that if you want to sober up, you just need to open the wine to contact with the air. This view is correct. However, if you just open the bottle and don't pour the wine into the decanter, the effect is very subtle. The amount of oxygen obtained by the wine passing through a standing liquid surface about the size of a copper plate is almost difficult to measure, only 0.1 mg per liter. It is better to open the bottle mouth a few hours before drinking. It is better to shake the wine into the glass when drinking, which can accelerate the oxidation of wine more quickly.
In fact, there are two kinds of wine to sober up
One is that she is too young and needs to oxidize with oxygen in the air quickly to volatilize the phenolic substances in wine, which can bring out extraordinary aroma; moreover, the situation of more astringency caused by tannins can also be improved by breathing (oxidation) of wine.
Second, if the old wine, when the wine is aged in the bottle for a long time, sometimes part of the sulfide will lead to unclean smell after opening the bottle. If an old man is locked in a narrow room where his trunk can not be stretched for decades, at the moment when he leaves the room, he always needs to take some time to stretch his muscles and bones, breathe fresh air, and let the fresh oxygen enter the blood. Maybe he will be a teenager soon! After moderate breathing, it can eliminate the deodorant, so as to achieve the effect of rejuvenation.
