Wine Online can teach you how to try to make your vintage flavor even better. The concepts of selecting stemware also pertain to decanters. A clear, crystal decanter allows you to view the wine at its finest; overly embellished or tinted decanters hide the wine. Furthermore, just as with your stemware, be sure that your decanter is spotless and free from any moldy cupboard scents. Rinse it with mineral water to get rid of any recurring chlorine smell. And never clean up your decanter with detergent, because the shape of a decanter makes it very hard to get the soapy deposits out.
