Full Answer

It should be noted that the freezing and thawing process can create a little sediment, or crystals of sodium tartrate, in the wine. If this is undesirable, the liquid can be poured through a metal screen into the glass. Additionally, unlike pure water that freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, various wines have different, lower freezing points due to their alcohol content. Thus, some wines may not completely freeze at the temperature maintained in a residential freezer.

    Should wine be decanted?

    A:

    The answer to the question of whether wine should be decanted may vary; individuals who aren't wine connoisseurs and simply want to have a drink might argue that this is an unnecessary step, but most wine connoisseurs will advocate for some sort of airing process. Decanters are more than just fancy glass containers for wine, and they are specifically designed to help add air to a wine after it has been in an airtight bottle. Additionally, proper decanting can separate the liquid wine from the sediment that can be found in the bottle, particularly in older vintages.
