Coravin Model 2 Elite System RED
The Coravin system makes it possible to pour a glass of wine without uncorking the bottle. The wine that remains in the bottle retains its quality and can be stored for years without losing taste. The latest edition of Coravin: Elite Red! The base is Model Two, but in a very beautiful (Ferrari) red color. The Coravin Model Two is the improved and redesigned version of a groundbreaking innovation: a way to open a bottle of wine without taking out the cork! A real 'must have' for every serious wine lover. The noble argon gas (prevents oxidation) is 'injected' into the bottle by means of a stainless steel teflon coated needle that passes through the cork. This creates pressure, so that the wine is 'pushed' out of the bottle by the same needle. Any oxygen that wants to enter the bottle is held back by the argon, which is heavier than oxygen. By not removing the cork from the bottle, the wine can continue to develop, which would normally oxidize once poured.
Thanks to the Coravin, the quality of the wine is therefore preserved and special wines - which usually remain in the wine cellar for a long time - can simply be served by the glass. The bottle remains unopened and unaffected, but can be drunk.
The following improvements have been made compared to the previous model (model 1 / model 1000):
- New needle which is thinner but pours 20% faster. Needle replaced now with a bayonet closure
- New handle makes it easier to open and close, and provides a secure hold on the bottle.
- Placing the gas cartridge for the Coravin is easier and ensures a perfect seal every time.
This kit includes:
- Coravin model 2
- Coravin standard needle
- 2 Coravin Argon Capsules
- Wine bottle sleeve
- Cleaning set for needle
This kit contains everything necessary to use the Coravin system. The only thing you may need in the long term are new Argon capsules. The needle supplied is suitable for almost all corks. After you have poured a glass, the needle is pulled out of the cork again. The same needle - after a cleaning turn - can be used again immediately for another bottle. So you only need one needle. Coravin Capsules have been specially developed for the Coravin System. They ensure perfect closing and pouring every time. These argon gas filled capsules are the power source for the Coravin system. The amount of glasses that can be poured per capsule varies. On average, the capsule contains enough for 15 glasses of 15cl. The kit already contains 2 argon capsules so it is completely ready for use.
