RIEDEL Wine wings are flat-bottomed and reminiscent of an aircraft wing, complete with winglets. While not the most visually beautiful collection, RIEDEL Wine wings is, according to Georg Riedel, “brutally functional, taking the wine’s aromas and flavors on a flight. 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 savory finish. It brings out the wine’s silky, velvety structure and balanced flavors.
