The Riedel Sommelier Rose glass is shaped to direct the flow of wine onto tip of the tongue, emphasising the wine’s fresh fruitiness while tempering its high acidity and bringing out its characteristic red berry and pinewood aromas. This is the ideal glass from which to enjoy typically tart, dry rosé wines.
Rosé is produced from red grapes but is made in the style of a white wine, and therefore served cold. Its pale color results from the short contact of the grape skins with the juice. Some wine-producing areas specialise in rosé, and their high yields result for the most part in unpretentious wines designed to be drunk young.
Sommeliers – the world’s first grape varietal specific wine glass collection and a design revolution created by Claus J. Riedel (9th generation) who perfected glass design to its essence: bowl, stem and base. Thin-blown and unadorned, it adheres to the Bauhaus design principle of form follows function. Claus J. Riedel worked with experienced tasters and discovered that wine enjoyed from specifically designed glasses showed more depth and better balance than when served in generic glasses. In 1973 the Sommeliers collection achieved worldwide recognition. The glass collection covers 29 different shapes for wines, champagne and spirits.
