Oxygen and wine have always had a difficult relationship. Too little oxygen and the wine's full taste potential is not reached. Too much oxygen and the wine is, not to put too fine point on it, spoiled.
Often the biggest problem occurs when you don't finish the bottle. Half a bottle of red left without any stopper will already be past it's best by the following evening. There are various stoppers and vacuum pumps on the market, but none of these will remove all the oxygen from the bottle, and the wine will steadily deteriorate. This is where the Zero Oxygen Solutions Halo wine preserver (or Halo for short) comes in. The system uses a replaceable cartridge to literally absorb all the oxygen in the bottle. With no oxygen present, the wine cannot oxidise and will stay as fresh as the day you opened it for up to two months!
Not only does the Halo work brilliantly, it also has a really stylish design with integrated coloured LED lights to tell you the status of the system.
The set consists of the preserver body, batteries, a seal-able holder for testing and storage and a cartridge (in sealed tube). Exposure to air will significantly shorten the life of the cartridge so it should remain in the sealed containers whenever possible. Before use, the Halo should be tested by removing from the holder and re-inserting, the lights will flash green and red, then settle on solid green for a good cartridge or solid red if the cartridge needs replacing.
Once in the bottle, the cartridge will absorb all the oxygen present in a matter of minutes. The lights will go out, but gentle movement of the bottle will result in a blue light to confirm correct operation.

Full instructions are provided.
Each cartridge will last for approximately 15 bottles and replacements are available.
It is important that the cartridge does not come in to contact with the wine, so ensue there is enough space in the bottle before inserting, and once sealed, do not shake the bottle or lay it on it's side.
The Halo will fit most corked bottles, but the neck of some screw top bottles will be too wide.
Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not dishwash or submerge in water.
