What mom doesn't need a cool glass of white wine every now and then! The Corkcicle is an innovative product designed to keep your white wines chilled and bring your room temperature reds down to a more suitable a cellar's temperature. Designed to fit the standard wine bottle, simply insert Corkcicle into the bottle's opening in place of the cork and sit and relax as Corkcicle brings your wine to the optimal chilling temperature from inside the bottle every time. The process works for whites and red wines -- maintaining temperatures for already chilled bottles of white wine, while also bringing warm reds down to a more suitable temperature and making sure their flavors don't take a backseat to the alcohol.
I am not a wine expert by any means, but I do know that wines left out for an extended period of time don't taste as good, as if it were chilled to the right temperature. And, who hates having to clean up condensation or melting ice from an ice bucket, every time you pass by it to grab another glass of wine? I know that I hate this. So, when I heard about the Corkcicle, and how it would solve the age old problem of keeping wines chilled, I had to try it out for myself. When I took the Corkcicle out the box, I was impressed with the icicle effect of the Corkcicle, which is actually a revolutionary thermal gel, that when stored in the freezer prior to use, will provide you with an hour of perfectly chilled wine, each and ever time. I love how you can reuse this product, by simply running under water and then putting back into the freezer until you are ready to use it again.
On the same day I received the Corkcicle to try out, I also received a bottle of wine to include in my Mother's Day Gift Giving Guide. So, prior to dinner, I popped the Corkcicle in the freezer, and 6 hours later, I was able to slide this wine chiller into my bottle of white wine. My husabnd and I were so impressed with how the wine stayed chilled, as we left it out on the counter. Each and every time we went to refill our glasses, the wine remained, which in turn made for a perfect glass of wine to be enjoyed. If you are not a white wine drinker, don't worry, as the Corkcicle works with red wines, too, helping to chill it enough to be enjoyed better. I hate when I pour a glass of red wine, which is usually served warm, only to be disappointed with the lack of flavor. But, after trying Corkcicle out last night with a bottle of red wine, I couldn't believe the difference this wine chiller made with the flavor. Because of this experience, I will definitely have to experiment with more red wines and use the Corkcicle with them.
And, with Mother's Day right around the corner, why not surprise your mother, mother-in-law or request that your family buy you a Corkcicle. What mother doesn't like to unwind at the end of the day with a nice glass of wine? And, now with this unique and innovative product, you will have be able to enjoy a perfect glass of wine, every time.
