VERITAS (2014) - A glass machine blown fine crystal of unsurpassed thinness and lightness. VERITAS combines the charm of a handmade glass with the consistent accuracy only a machine-made glass can achieve.
The Old World Syrah glass is perfect for balancing the fruit pepper and spice aromas, and gripping tannins often found in medium-bodied red wines.
Its accentuated egg-shaped bowl brings forward the soft fruit, earthy characteristics, and highlights a long savoury finish. Machine-made and dishwasher safe.

Caring for your RIEDEL Crystal
To avoid stains: use soft water (low mineral content)
To avoid scratches: Avoid glass contact with other glass or metal
To remove stains: use white vinegar
If available use a stemware rack
If washing by hand
Wash the glass under warm water (use detergent and rinse the glass carefully)
Glass polishing: Use two polishing cloths, never hold the glass by the base to polish the bowl
Stem snap: Occurs through mishandling = torque or bend pressure at the stem
Storage: Avoid glass storage in kitchen cabinets which have strong aromas that translates into glass
