Checking off your Christmas shopping list before the crowds become devastating? You'll want to get wine-loving friends (but not wine-guzzling, because then they wouldn't need it) the Coravin Pivot Wine Preservation System that currently retails for $215.
The two-part wine tool comprising a reusable Pivot Stopper and a Pivot Device can be operated by simply putting on the stopper, inserting the device through the stopper, then pouring the wine while pressing a button that releases 100 percent pure Argon gas to replace the poured wine. This prevents oxygen from affecting the remaining liquid, and while all Coravin systems utilises Coravin Pure Argon Capsules to preserve wine, the Pivot system boasts an efficient gas usage of 20 pours (150ml) from just one capsule.
The best part: an opened bottle of wine can be kept in tip-top condition for up to four weeks. In addition, the Pivot system comes with an average pour speed of seven seconds per glass, which almost equates to pouring directly from the bottle.
And if you want to make someone feel extra special, pick out the Coravin x 1855 The Bottle Shop Festive Bundle that retails for $325. Apart from the Pivot Wine Preservation System, it also comes with a three-pack Pure Argon Capsules (worth S$50) and a Le Ragose Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG 2011 (worth S$125). How's this for spreading the love this festive season?
