Coravin wine system explanation
Conventional wine preservation systems delay the oxidation of wines. The Coravin wine system is different. The Coravin system does not remove the cork and thus contributes to a greatly increased longevity of the wine. The wine thus remains in its original state and tastes as desired even after a long time.
To do this, a Coravin needle is gently pushed through the cork without displacing the cork material. The cork reseals immediately as soon as the needle is removed.
Wines that are equipped with a screw cap can also be used. Here, the conventional screw cap with a Coravin silicone screw cap replaced. This specially designed accessory allows approximately 50 uses with the Coravin needle thanks to a silicone lining. The Coravin silicone screw cap can then be replaced with a new cap.
The wine is extracted from the bottle using pure argon gas. This ensures that the remaining wine never comes into contact with oxygen and thus remains fresh.
Coravin Wine System - Function
The Coravin Wine System is easy to use. Insert the needle, tilt the bottle and pour out. First, the trigger is pressed to remove air from the needle. The Coravin wine system is then placed on the bottle and the needle pushed through the cork. The desired amount of wine is then removed from the cartridges by the targeted supply of argon gas.
The Coravin System can be used with all still wine bottles. The Coravin Model Six Core and the Coravin Model Eleven are used with the same steps.
Coravin System - Models and Accessories
Each Coravin Pure cartridge will serve an average of approximately 15 glasses (150ml) of wine. To get the most out of each Coravin Pure cartridge, we recommend setting the dial to a slower pour speed. If you hear hissing when you put the bottle down after pouring, you are using more argon than necessary. You can optimize consumption by reducing the serving quantity. When the level in the bottle is low, more argon is consumed. If you expect to drink the rest of the wine that same day, you should therefore uncork the bottle.
