There is no more elegant bird than the Swan, so Riedel thought it only fitting that their Swan decanter should embody the same natural grace. The body of the decanter mimics the gentle curvature of the form of a Swan, forming “J” shape with an exaggeratedly elongated straight neck that narrows to the elliptical lip. Wine is simply poured into the wider opening of the Swan’s “tail” (which also forms a natural handle for services) then effortlessly poured into the glass from the narrow “neck”. As fascinating to look at as it is functional to use, the Swan decanter does the job of separating sediment from older wines, while allowing the younger ones to aerate and mature.

Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging.(Thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)
