Gas way to beat nasties

WINE by the glass is a glorious addition to our dining scene but there is a concern about the condition of the wine when the patron gets to taste them.

After all, wine is perishable and if left open too long exposed to oxygen, may end up a stale, lethargic wine.

Some establishments like 44 King Street, The Surf Club, Subiaco Wine Room, the Globe Cafe and the Hilton have invested in wine preservation technology which allows them to cover the opened wine with inert nitrogen gas before recorking it.

This expels the oxygen and with it the nasties.

These units are expensive to install but there is a cheaper alternative.

It is a spray can called Wine Preserver which for $20 gives 80 squirts of gas into bottles of open wine.

If you do your sums that’s 25¢ per bottle and if you weigh it against a spoilt bottle, the sums are right.

The Wine preserver gas cans are available from Cork Pops.
