我们非常高兴地欢迎卡拉文Sparkling · 气泡酒保存器 加入我们取酒器系统的阵容。顾名思义,Sparkling · 气泡酒保存器将气泡酒碳酸化保存一个月,让餐厅可以倒出更多杯气泡酒,或者让香槟鉴赏家从他们最喜欢的酒瓶里拿出更多的美酒。
想了解它是如何工作的吗?简而言之,在使用后向酒瓶中充入二氧化碳。二氧化碳形成一层毯子,使氧气无法进入,二氧化碳也无法逸出。请继续阅读以准确了解如何以及何时使用卡拉文Sparkling · 气泡酒保存器。

Sparkling · 气泡酒的开瓶方法

在您使用卡拉文Sparkling · 气泡酒保存器之前,您需要知道如何开瓶。尽我们所能,我们无法在不打开软木塞的情况下保存Sparkling气泡酒。
1. 取下Sparkling气泡酒软木塞上的箔纸。
2. 完全解开软木塞,松开覆盖软木塞的铁丝笼。取下它或将其留在上面以获得额外的抓地力。
3. 将酒瓶倾斜 45°,一只手牢牢抓住软木塞和笼子,另一只手抓住酒瓶的底部。开始来回扭动 瓶子。牢牢抓住软木塞,使其缓慢推出。
4. 慢慢松开软木塞,聆听那微妙的“砰”声。
5. 倒酒。干杯!


How to use Coravin Sparkling

Now that the bottle is open, it’s time to give Coravin Sparkling a job. After every pour, immediately place the Coravin Sparkling stopper on the bottle. We recommend charging your bottle at the end of the day or when you’re ready to store the bottle for a later date. If you’ll finish the bottle in 1-2 days, it might not need a charge – simply store it in a cold, dark place if you don’t mind some decrease in carbonation. To preserve the effervescence of the wine so every glass tastes as good as the first, charge the bottle after each pour and consume the wine within 2 weeks. 

Each Coravin Sparkling CO2 capsule can preserve an average 7 bottles of sparkling wine depending on how empty or full your bottles are. Use your stopper in between pours to ensure the wine stays as fresh as possible.

How to Use Coravin Sparkling

Installing the Coravin Sparkling stopper

  1. Remove the cork and foil around the neck. Pour sparkling wine.

  2. Raise lock handle on stopper until you see the unlock symbol. Place Sparkling stopper on the bottle.

  3. Firmly press down on the locking handle until it is flush. Significant force may be required.

Removing the Sparkling stopper

  1. To remove Sparkling stopper, place hand securely on top of stopper. Tilt stopper or pull Locking Handle halfway to release pressure. Then pull handle to unlocked position and remove stopper.

  2. Pour sparkling wine.

Install a Sparkling CO2 capsule

  1. This System is designed to work only with genuine Coravin Pure™ Sparkling CO2 Capsules. Always check that the pressure indicator on the Sparkling charger is red (no gas remaining) before installing a new capsule.

  2. Slide latch cover up to reveal door latches.

  3. Squeeze door latches in firmly and pull open to reveal the capsule bay release

  4. Slide release up to open capsule bay.

  5. Insert new Coravin Sparkling capsule – balck cap up

  6. Close the capsule bay firmly – you’ll hear an audible click. Slide latch cover down to cover door latches.

  7. Close access door firmly until it latches. This action will puncture CO2 capsule. Check that pressure indicator is green. Do not open access door until the pressure indicator is red

Preserving sparkling wine

  1. Sparkling charger has a green/red pressure Indicator on the side to show when a bottle has been fully charged with CO2 and if the CO2 cartridge has gas or is empty (see instructions for more information). 

  2. Make sure Sparkling charger nozzle and top of Sparkling stopper are clean.

  3. Align Sparkling charger on top of Sparkling stopper and press straight down firmly until you hear CO2 releasing into the bottle.

  4. Hold until you hear gas stop or pressure Indicator turns green. If you hear gas leaking out, check that you are pressing straight down and Sparkling charger is well seated. Store bottle in refrigerator on its side for best preservation results.

The future of sparkling wine drinking

One of the major challenges facing the sparkling wine industry is the fragility of the wine. Within hours of opening the bottle, the bubbles break down, leading to a once-sparkling beverage losing its effervescence. Coravin Sparkling™ Sparkling Wine Preservation System solves this problem with a portable, easy-to-use system that pairs a secure, universal-fit stopper with a hand-held charging unit to maintain the wine’s carbonation level between pours, whether that’s a few hours, a few days, or a few weeks.
