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. Machine-made crystal glasses and dishwasher safe.
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 Sauvignon Blanc glass is perfect for all styles of this variety, from the grassy, fruit-forward wines of the Marlborough to the oak-aged, honeyed blends from Bordeaux. RIEDEL collaborated with various regions including Marlborough, New Zealand, to design the new product to suit the variety’s evolving New World style. This glass is also recommended for dessert wines. The shape of the Sauvignon Blanc glass shows the combination of fruit and acidity perfectly balanced on the palate, giving a harmonious taste experience.
The New World Pinot Noir is perfect to support the balance of fragility and fresh compact fruit in light-bodied wines from the New World.
The tulip shape and slightly flared lip highlights the irresistible sweetness, whilst perfectly balancing the acidity and deemphasizing the alcohol, to create a perfect picture of the wine. This glass is also well suited for showing the aromatics of Rosé Champagne.
The Oaked Chardonnay glass is perfect to reveal the intensity of full-bodied white wines, including the wine's multi-layered aromas.
With a larger volume, the wide open-mouthed bowl enables the rich bouquet to develop its wonderfully diverse range of aromas, emphasizing the finesse while minimizing the risk of richer style white wines becoming over-concentrated.
