This exclusive Chardonnay glass is designed so that the low acidity is delivered in a way that sets off the high alcohol content and rich flavors of the wine, highlighting its velvety, supple texture, emphasizing the fruit and ensuring a long, balanced finish. This classic Riedel shape allows young wines to express all their invigorating freshness, while more mature wines are encouraged to deliver the nutty, spicy, mineral flavors so typical of the variety.
The bowl brings out complex aromas, while the narrow rim directs the flow of wine to the center of the tongue, which allows you to appreciate the balance of acidity and fruit flavors. Artisans at the company's family-owned factory in Austria craft this exquisite piece individually, performing every step of the glassmaking process by hand. Riedel is committed to bringing you the world's premier wine glasses which deliver the wine to your palate in a way that enhances and accentuates the wine's enjoyable complexities.
