There are far more knowledgeable critics than me on here. It just bloody works. It's fun too with it's chunky gunmetal casing and gas canisters. Feels like it's fresh from Q division. Perfect for the solo wine lover. Two warnings though: (i) replacement gas is pricey although there are hacks online to save a few quid; (ii) you find yourself buying lots and lots of smashing wine but wishing there weren't so many damn screwcaps about these days.
