~ PRIVATE PRESERVE ARGON WINE PRESERVATION SYSTEM FOR OPENED BOTTLES ~
DIRECTIONS: Put the extension straw in the can nozzle WD-40 style. Simply place straw in the bottle opening with the cork on top and spray briefly. Follow the recommended doses on the can to remove all the oxygen. Once finished, quickly remove the straw and press the cork tightly in place. Takes about 3 seconds once you get the hang of it. You can use the original cork or one of our many styles of tasting corks (not included). Store the opened bottle upright. Please note that a full bottle feels empty but contains enough gas for 120 full uses.
BLIND TASTINGS: In a recently published study wines preserved for two days and seven days with the product earned some of the highest marks in comparison to more expensive competing products. The taster couldn’t tell much of a difference between a fresh bottle of wine and one preserved with Private Preserve for a week.
DOES NOT STRIP BOUQUET: Private Preserve Wine blankets the wine’s surface in bottle or decanter, and will not strip out the bouquet (volatile esters) like the vacuum devices, by using HARMLESS argon, carbon dioxide and nitrogen, Private Preserve to displace all of the oxygen.
THE SCIENCE: Oxygen is corrosive to wine and once your bottle is open fresh oxygen enters. Over a few hours it ‘oxidizes’ the wine and spoils the taste and bouquet. So we use purge the fresh air containing oxygen with an inert gas that won’t change the wine. Private Preserve works by forming a layer of inert gas on top of your wine in an opened bottle. The main gas in Private Preserve is Argon (Ar) which weighs 39.948u, almost twice as heavy as Oxygen (O) which weighs 15.999u. Unlike imperfect vacuum preservation systems, the combination of argon, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen will not strip the wine of its bouquet.
WINE BY THE GLASS: Preserves profits as well as wine! Never toss a half bottle at the end of the night – Private Preserve them and they are good for days or even weeks (depending on the wine and environment). Private Preserve is also an ideal way to build your ‘by the glass’ line of expensive wines, because you customers will never be served an oxygenated pour from yesterdays bottle. You can get in cheap at less than $15 as opposed to hundreds or thousands for by-the-glass preservation systems.
WINERIES and WINEMAKERS: Some wines benefit from Argon sparging during the original bottling process. Private Preserve is the ideal way to test this out on part of a batch, and you’ll need some for the tasting room anyway, right? Comes in cases of 12, bulk pricing available.
IN THE KITCHEN: Even prevents oxidation of cooking oils and vinegars.
