Which Coravin To Buy

This is the original and most versatile Coravin model of the three. This system will puncture the cork so you can pour wine while also pressurizing the bottle to keep the remaining liquid safe from harmful oxygen. When used properly, the Timeless system allows you to pour from and preserve an unlimited number of bottles. You can also safely access and pour from a single bottle about 25 times, which is far more than you should ever need to.

Additionally, both of these models work with still wines, natural corks, and even screw cap closures, which is perfect for those who have preferences when it comes to the way in which the wine is sealed.

It is essentially a wine opener with a needle that is carefully inserted through the cork and an inert gas (typically argon, which is heavier than oxygen) that is used to displace the wine out of the bottle all while preventing oxygen from entering. After the needle is removed, the cork effectively re-seals thanks to its elastic properties and allows for longer storage over other wine preservation systems (like a vacuum pump).

We also like to mark our bottles prior to returning them to our wine rack so we know which ones have been partially consumed. You can do this any number of ways, but we just generally use blue painter's tape around the neck of the bottle as it is rather obvious in our cellar (visible in the above photo).

The Pivot marks a significant shift from previous Coravin wine preservation systems, which are coveted by wine collectors and industry professionals for their ability to keep wine drinkable for many months, and sometimes years.

If you upgrade to the newly-released Pivot+ for an additional $30, you'll get an extra argon gas capsule (which usually costs about $8 when sold in sets of two or six) and an aerator that attaches to the pouring spout. The Pivot aerator performs beautifully. Its corkscrew-like spigot lets an impressive amount of oxygen hit the wine as it sprays into the glass, helping to soften some of the tannins (or other harsh textures) of the wine.

The package also includes four CO2 capsules, which can preserve up to seven standard-sized bottles of sparkling wine each. Additional capsules cost $44.99 / 44.99 / AU$84.95 for six, while extra stoppers are priced at $89.95 / 79.99 / AU$149.95.

The Coravin Sparkling preservation system comprises the bottle stopper and the sparkling charger. The kit comes with two stoppers, which allows you to preserve two bottles of bubbly at any one time. However, measuring 3 x 2.75 x 2.75 inches / 7.6 x 7 x 7cm (h x w x d) and weighing 15.2 oz / 400g, the stopper here is much bulkier and heavier than the traditional vacuum stopper you might use on a bottle of sparkling wine.

The bottle stopper also has a locking handle, which should be raised when the stopper is placed over the neck of a bottle and then closed to ensure the bottle stopper remains in place, even when the bottle is placed on its side. The top of the bottle stopper also features a small indent for the nozzle of the sparkling charger.

The sparkling charger is a slim gadget, similar in size and weight to a pair of hair straighteners, measuring 10.2 x 2.95 x 2.95 inches / 25.9 x 7.5 x 7.5cm (h x w x d). It has a handle at the back with a rubberized section, which makes it easy to grip, and a base that fits snugly around the bottle stopper to allow the nozzle to connect with it.

On test, we found the Coravin Sparkling extremely simple to use. We loaded a CO2 capsule into the sparking charger by sliding down the latch to open the capsule container, into which we popped a capsule. It closed with a satisfying click, and the indicator on each side of the charger turned from red to green, indicating it was ready to use.

The Pivot is an argon gas wine preservation system. As you pour wine out with a Pivot, the space in the bottle is filled with argon gas. Argon is a noble gas which drastically reduces oxidation that causes wine to go bad. This is amazing because it increases preservation of open bottles from 4 days to 4 weeks and each argon gas capsule preserves 20 glasses (4 bottles). 041b061a72
