Performance– the new ultimate loudspeaker for fine wine. Lightweight, durable and dishwasher-safe, Performance glasses are executed in sparkling fine crystal and feature long fine stems and large stable bases. Performance’s unique optic impact not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl but also increases inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and to fully show every aroma and subtle nuance.
The Cabernet glass is perfect for full-bodied, complex red wines that are high in tannin.
The generous size of this glass allows the bouquet to develop fully, and smooths out the rough edges. It emphasises the fruit, playing down the bitter qualities of the tannin, and allows wines to achieve balance. The optic impact in the RIEDEL Performance series adds both a design feature and an astounding effect on wine's aromatics. Machine-made and dishwasher safe.
