The Riedel Performance Shiraz , Syrah glass of the technologically advanced glass collection Performance is the new ultimate loudspeaker for fine wine. The shape of the glass optimal delivers the classic aromas of toast and black olives, which are typical for wines made of Shiraz grapes. On the palate, it brings out the wine’s silky, velvety structure.
The tannins melt into the fruit, appearing sweet rather than acerbic on the back palate. Performance is the first Riedel wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic impact, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area.
With three generations of research, development and experience in creating functional, grape varietal specific glassware, Georg and Maximilian RIEDEL challenged themselves to improve on what had gone before. The result is Performance – a technologically advanced and user-friendly collection of grape varietal specific glasses. Performance is the first RIEDEL wine glass series ever to feature bowls with a light optic impact. Detailed research by the RIEDEL family, aimed at improving the organoleptic wine experience, revealed that increasing the inner surface area of the glass had a positive impact on the perception of the bouquet and flavour of the wine.
This was achieved through a unique optical effect, which not only adds a pleasing visual aspect to the bowl, but also increases the inner surface area, allowing the wine to open up and to fully show every aroma and subtle nuance. Consisting of seven machine-made, lightweight, durable and dishwasher-safe shapes, Performance glasses are executed in sparkling fine crystal and feature fine stems and large stable bases. The new bowl shapes in Performance, when combined with the optic effect, deliver ultimate wine enjoyment, making Performance the new essential ‘must-have’ wine glass collection for all wine-lovers.
