Based in Austria for over 200 years, Riedel is a world reknown manufacturer of high quality glassware. Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass. A unique glass brings out the best in every wine – that’s what sets Riedel glassware apart.
A superior wine decanter is capable of turning a good wine into something remarkable. By allowing the wine to breathe, a decanter enhances its aroma, balance and taste and allows you to experience wine at its very best.
"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging." - (thoughts on decanting by Christian Moueix)
The coils and curvature of the Riedel Curly Decanter help to “charge” and aerate wine and is particularly effective on young wines. The twists of the decanter form a soft and playful spiral, with a closed “tail end” and wider spout for easy pouring.
