Sharing a bottle of wine amongst two or three people is a wonderful event, however, there are times that a couple of glasses out of a bottle is more than enough. On the occasions when you want to match a series of wines with food then more bottles will be opened than it is possible to consume. In the past, left over wine could be protected by using a Vacuvin, whereby all the air (including the protective layer of CO2 ) was pumped out of the bottle. Then there are Nitrogen capsules, a rather messy way to protect the wine from oxidation. Many wine lovers simply stick the cork back in the bottle, and if it’s a wine capable of developing, then a couple of days later it will still taste ok. The problem is oxidation which rears its head, if you want to sip the wine over a 5-7 day period. By the end of that time the wine tastes flat and much of the aromatics have long gone.
Australian inventor Barry Rees has developed a new device for keeping wine. The 'Wine Preserva' It is a simple inert plastic floating disk that comes with a tong to push the disc into the top of the bottle. At first glance the Wine Preserva looks like it might be used as a fertility disk, but once over the initial (amusing) impression the Wine Preserva works a treat.
The inert plastic disk floats on top of the wine and moves down as each glass is poured. It is essentially a blanket that prevents oxygen coming into contact with the wine to prevent oxidation. Great ideas are always simple. Packs of 50 disks are a small price to pay for a fresh bottle of wine that has been open for 5-7 days.
