I think I can even hardly breathe so shocked I am. If anyone reading this post on the subway, please look for a place to sit. The point is that you know that we are always trying to find the best wines, the best vintages, the most effective ways to store wine (recently we talked about how to vacuum your wine bottles). But the future is here and, frankly, I do not know if we’re ready.
So no one gets the impact of the information in the same way that I have received it, without any preparation, without previous notice, I will make you this favour. Let’s get started. Imagine that you are astronauts. The fishbowl on your head, the Michelin suit, those cables that hang from your rear end and connect you with the mother ship. Well, I think we’re in a situation.
Now try to think that you are in the middle of the outer space, asteroids go so close to you, the Earth is the size of a pinhead and all what you want is a glass of red wine. You take a look at the closet where you have left some provisions but no trace of wine. Just a lot of food powders, dehydrated food.
We have just entered the phase of post worthy of sitting down. Well, yes. Exactly what you’re thinking: the new way of aging a wine is dehydrating it (freaks!).
The procedure requires a device which works separating water and alcohol from the other components of your wine. All what is left gets properly stored in a sealed envelope where is ready to age, preserving intact all the properties of that precious 75cl of wine that have just been processed. After three years, the wine remains the same, the same will happen after some decades. Same as Walt Disney, but drier.
Moreover, those who want to take their alchemist side out, must know that it is possible to sprinkle the powdered mixture of wine components with other types of wine elements multiplying its flavor, aroma or optimize their properties. It can be considered as an advantage for those who do not have the chance to practice winemaking with wine from their own vineyards (either because they do not have vineyards, because we do not have a cellar, they are not winemakers or whatever it is that they have reached this situation).
The other benefit of this futuristic invention is its ecological side, so space saving involved, allowing a grab hold of those and do not wiggle in less square centimeters of those occupying these encyclopedias that many saw at home when we were children (in the last century, of course).
