Flat-bottomed and reminiscent of an aircraft wing, complete with winglets, RIEDEL Winewings was born and about to take flight! RIEDEL Winewings is brutally functional, taking the wine’s aromas and flavours on a flight. Winewings glasses primarily emphasize the minerality of the wine, whereas all other collections tend to highlight fruit. The collection is ideal for the ultimate wine geek who prefers wines with depth and complexity.
The Shiraz/Syrah glass is perfect for balancing the gripping tannins and concentrated fruit typical of medium-bodied red wines.
This shape brings forward the soft fruit, earthy characteristics, and highlights a long savoury finish. It brings out the wine's silky, velvety structure and balanced flavours.
Machine-made and dishwasher safe.
