The handmade decanter distinguishes by its groundbreaking and functional design. The Ayam, is inspired by and named after the rare breed of Indonesian hen, and makes a unique centerpiece for the table in the form of a highfunctioning wine tool. Formed freely by hand without the help of any molds by RIEDEL master glass blowers, the decanter is extremely demanding to create, with a wide mouth for both receiving and pouring wine opening into a wider base to allow the free flow of air exchange with the wine. A tapered and curled tip adds a second level of functionality to the Ayam: the closed tail counterweighs the neck and base to allow the decanter to hang off the side of the table. True to RIEDEL’s guiding philosophy of form follows function, the piece therefore maximizes space while still efficiently double decanting when wine is poured into and from the decanter, greatly reducing the time needed to aerate the wine. The first RIEDEL decanter to balance and suspend from the table, the Ayam is an innovation and conversation piece, adding to the convivial wine experience at the table. RIEDEL tip: use bottle cleaners to remove stains inside the decanter.

Note: It is recommended to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. 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.
