In the case of red wines, wine from a decanter expresses a higher fruit content on the palate and tends to integrate and take the rough edge off tannins.
In homage to the Riedel family’s central European heritage in Austria and Bohemia, the Horn decanter was in fact inspired by the iconic insignia that symbolises the Austrian Post’s mail delivery system. Europe’s 18th and 19th century mail system utilized horse drawn carriages to deliver mail between cities, and to announce their arrival, mail carriers would play the Post Horn to notify the public. Influential musicians of this time period, like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Austrian composer born in 1756, the same year of Riedel’s founding, also incorporated the horn into their music, and now modern day oenophiles and musicians alike can do the same, creating music by blowing into the Horn’s smaller opening.
Riedel has been emphasising the importance of decanting for many years. This applies to all wines, be they red, white, young or mature – and even to champagne. International design awards and patents underscore the expertise developed by the company over the years in the field of decanters and their functionality. In the case of red wines, wine from a decanter expresses a higher fruit content on the palate and tends to integrate and take the rough edge off tannins. We offer a huge selection of elegant machine-blown and extravagant hand-crafted decanters to honour good wines with the treatment that they deserve.
