More Details: This decanter has a 2L capacity perfect for a Magnum of your favourite wine. Named after the iconic Lygon Street in Melbourne, the home city of Plumm glassware. Decanters serve two main purposes as they allow the wine to breathe and are useful when it comes to removing sediment from older wines. Most red wines will benefit from being decanted at least 15 minutes before you serve them with some wines even benefiting from several hours in the decanter. They are softened and the aromas are clarified. Plumm decanters are manufactured using premium European Crystal.
