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.
The Extreme glasses derive their name from their extreme contours. The bowls are reminiscent of polished diamonds that spread out wide and taper off at the top. This allows the wine plenty of room to breathe, enhancing and emphasizing the pleasant softness and generally fruity notes of the New World wines.
The diamond-shaped machine-made Shiraz glass of the eye-catching glass collection Extreme is focused on New World Wines. The shape of the glass optimal delivers the classic aromas of toast and black olives, which are typical for wines made of Shiraz grapes. On the palate, it brings out the wine's silky, velvety structure and balanced flavours. The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather than acerbic on the back palate.
